Kimball Library News 10/20/14

KNITWITS: Whether you are a beginner or an experienced knitter, come join the fun as we learn together.  This is an informal gathering to complete unfinished projects or perhaps get some ideas for beginning some new ones.  We’ll cozy up in the Atkinson Room of the library, share some laughs, drop a stitch or two, and make some new friends.  Please bring your own supplies.  All experience levels and ages welcome.

FEELING LUCKY?: The library currently is hosting two concurrent raffles.  One sports everything from baskets loaded with themed items such as all the fixings for ice cream sundaes to a beautiful photograph of Arcadia National Park.  We have baskets for spa lovers, bakers, Christmas lovers, and more.  To date, we have 16 different baskets to choose from.  These tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5. 

We also have a raffle tree loaded with gift cards from places such as Moynihan Lumber, The Early Bird, Sullivan Tire and Auto Repair, and Dunkin Donuts.  This gift certificate bonanza value is $470.  These raffle tickets are priced at $5 each or 3 for $10. 

These baskets will be in the library until October 31st, and from there they will be held at the Peddler’s Market on Saturday, November 1st, at the Atkinson Community Center from 9am-3pm.  The drawing will take place near the close of the market.  You need not be present to win.  Buy now, and buy often!  Win or lose, all proceeds fund programs for the library so that alone makes you a winner.

VETERAN'S DAY PROGRAM with Author & Artist ROBERT BRUN: Join us on Monday, November 10th, at 6:30pm to hear author artist, Robert Brun.  Brun's interest in aviation began at a very early age.  During the first 18 years of his life he built scale and flying models of just about 'anything with a propeller', but his primary interest is aircraft of the 1930s and 40s.  He published his first historical fiction book My Shadow in 2013.  Robert will talk about his love for aviation and his new project with veterans.

Robert will have his military and aviation art on display at the library from October 20th through November 21st.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.  Refreshments will be served.

LIBRARY CLOSED: The library will be closed on Tuesday, November 11th, in honor of Veterans’ Day.  Please stock up accordingly.
