Kimball Library News 7/7/14

CHANGE of PLANS~ The July evening BOOK DISCUSSION of ‘Sumner Island’ has been changed from July 15 to July 22nd because the author of the book of the month will be joining us.

Take a peek inside~ A trip to Sumner Island for a séance is right up historian Mitch's alley, but something is awry, the magnificent hotel at the island's center seems to keep changing...

Local author, Michael Cormier, will available to discuss this great summer read.  We always welcome newcomers to the group, and this is the perfect month to try us out.  Ask for a copy of the book of the month at the front desk.  If you don’t have a chance to read it, feel free to drop by and listen to the conversation and meet the author.

SPARK A CRIME~ The t/weens will have an opportunity on Tuesday, July 22nd, to learn and experience a bit of forensics with our guest scientist, Steve Theberge.

The query of the evening is ‘Whodunit’?  Help solve a crime by identifying types of ink using chromatography.  This is a teen-friendly crash course in forensics.  Please limit registration to youth ages 10-19. (Residents only, until the day before the event.)

T/WEENS enrolled in the ‘Spark a Reaction’ reading program: As always, REGISTER & ATTEND teen events gets you two raffle tickets!

WHERE YOUR FOOD COMES FROM~ Join Valentine & Sons Seed Company and discover 'Where Your Food Comes From' with the Gardening Rocks Mobile Farm. This program is designed to show children in grades K-6 where the food they eat really comes from.  They will be able to go home with something they really planted and watch it grow.

*Register youth in grades K-6 to attend on Wednesday, July 23, at 6:30pm. We are most thankful that this gardening event is graciously sponsored by the Atkinson Garden Club.
