Kimball Library News 6/16/14

For those of you who prefer sound and visuals versus print, we have two fantastic videos with information regarding our summer reading programs.  The videos are posted on our facebook page as well as on the ‘summer reading events’ post on our website.  One includes the info on all the general summer reading events and one is geared for the t/ween events.  Take time for a click and listen!

We have so many exciting events coming up for preschool, elementary, middle and high school ages for the summer.  Please remember to first register for summer reading as a whole and then register for each individual event that you plan to attend. 

IGNITE SLIME!  This 'slimy' event is for our littlest literary kids ages 3-7 and will be held on Thursday, July 3rd, at 4pm.  Have your little one wear clothing that can get messy as there is bound to be slime everywhere!  Learn a little about the science of slime and learn a lot about fun!  Residents only, please, for this popular event.  Registration is required. 

FIZZ BOOM GUMDROP CONSTRUCTION!  All future engineers entering grades k-5 should register for this sweet event.  Can you build a gumdrop structure that will be strong enough to hold a stack of books? One book? Two books? Can you do it? Using only toothpicks and gumdrops, you're up for the test! This is your mission. Will you accept it?  If yes, register in advance and attend on Monday, July 7th, from 6:30-7:30pm in the children’s room at Kimball Library.  

SPARK an LED THROWIE!  This should ‘spark’ an interest in all t/weens ages 10-19.  On Tuesday, July 8th, at 6:30pm we’ll be making LED throwies, learning the science behind them, and then throwing them at some targets.  LED throwies are an inexpensive way to add color to any ferromagnetic surface in your neighborhood. A throwie consists of a lithium battery, a 10mm diffused LED and a rare-earth magnet taped together. Throw it up high and in quantity to impress your friends and city officials.  Our guest scientist for the evening of throwies will be Dan Heer.  Come make a throwie, toss at some targets, and light up your night! 

This program is for residents only up until the day of the event.  Non-residents can sign-up 24 hours prior to the event should space open for additional participants.  Age restrictions will be enforced.

These entertaining programs are free of charge and sponsored by the Friends of the Kimball Library.
