Kimball Library News 7/28/14

SQUEEZEBOX STOMPERS:  'JAM' with the Squeezebox Stompers (a blend of Roadhouse Roots, Blues, Cajun, and Zydeco) on Thursday, August 7th at 6:00pm in the Kimball Courtyard, and during intermission around 6:30 we'll be making ice cream sundaes. This event is courtesy of the Friends of Kimball Library and closes out our summer reading programs (both children and t/ween programs).  Bring your 'dancing' shoes!
Please register all ages for accurate buying purposes.

T/WEEN COMBINATION DISCUSSION:  The book of the month is 'Divergent' by Veronica Roth and will take place on Wednesday, August 13th, at 6:30pm.

Divergent is an electrifying thriller filled with tough decisions, stunning consequences, and unexpected romance. Fans of the movie will find the book packed with just as much emotional depth and exhilarating action as the film, all told in beautiful, rich language.

One choice can transform you. Beatrice Prior's society is divided into five factions—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). Beatrice must choose between staying with her Abnegation family and transferring factions. Her choice will shock her community and herself. But the newly christened Tris also has a secret, one she's determined to keep hidden, because in this world, what makes you different makes you dangerous.

All interested mature middle & high school students are welcome.  Please ask for a copy of the current book at the front desk.

WIGGLE WORDS:  Make letters with your bodies, learn some alphabet sign language, run and jump to rhyming words, and dance, dance, DANCE!

Join Michelle Collins--former teacher, curriculum designer, Zumba instructor, and homeschooling mom to combine letters and movement to jump start your children into literacy. This exciting class will take place on Wednesday, August 20th, from 10:30-11:00am.  Registration is required.  If there is strong interest we may offer this event on a regular monthly basis.
