Kimball Library News 6/2/14

READY, SET, REGISTER for SUMMER READING!  Registration for all summer reading programs (preschool), (elementary), and (t/weens—middle/high school) begins on Friday, June 6th.  Each year there is a bit of confusion regarding this process so we proactively start to explain the semantics now.  To be included in the summer reading program, registration is required for all age groups. Individual events for various age groups will also require registration as the events have a maximum capacity, and food or craft supplies need to be purchased in advance.  We take care not to over-purchase for our events. Please take note to register for the program as a whole, but also to register for each individual event that your child plans to attend.

We truly appreciate cancellations being called in or not 'committing to too many' because some other child may be on a waiting list or excluded and that spot in reality is being stolen in essence by someone not actually attending.  More information regarding all the programs will be forthcoming, but definitely note that you may begin general registration on June 6th.  Registration for the program as a whole is ongoing until, however, the sooner you begin the sooner you child can begin to win prizes.

The RIBBON CUTTING CEREMONY & the TIMBERLANE COMMUNITY BAND is a featured highlight on our June calendar.  Starting at 6:30pm on June 19th, there will be a ribbon cutting ceremony featuring our beautiful new library courtyard project.  Come see the permanent sitting walls with stairs, expanded walkways, and pristine patio and performing area.   Low voltage lighting will be part of the features to note as well as a sprinkler system.  After the ribbon cutting, you'll be delighted with beautiful music featuring the Timberlane Community Band TCB) who has performed and been appreciated at the library many times past.  The Timberlane Community Band consists of over 40 musicians with principal conductor, Tony DiBartolomeo and assistant conductor, John Mainella.  

The SUMMER READING KICKOFF show this year will be with kooky and zany Jungle Jim and MOUSETRAP SCIENCE.  Learning about science is absolutely a blast with Jungle Jim.   Combining math, science, and art, 'How to Catch a Mouse' has entertained literally hundreds of audiences! With the aid of audience volunteers, the mechanics of simple machines are explained, while constructing a working Rube Goldberg-style mousetrap intended to solve the problem of a mouse on the loose. Then, with the audience's newfound knowledge of how machines work and their eagerness to see their trap set in motion, this show comes to an exciting and hilarious conclusion that reinforces both the power of learning and the power of applying the lessons to everyday life. It’s a zany good time that makes learning fun!  A long-standing hit in New York, this show is not to be missed. 

Please register yourself and your children.  This event is generously being sponsored by the Elizabeth Smith Estate.  In case of inclement weather this will be held at Atkinson Academy.
