Kimball Library News 9/22/15

‘WEATHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT’ KITCHEN SCIENCE: Ever wonder why the wind blows?  Or how ocean currents move? How can a nice peaceful day suddenly can erupt into a stormy one?  And how DOES a storm turn into a hurricane? 

Like a tornado, we will twist and turn through experiments that will answer these questions about weather.  Science is interesting and fun!
Resident and local science instructor, Craig Richard, is bringing kitchen science to grades 1-5 on Wednesday, October 15, at 6:30pm at Kimball Library 'WEATHER' you like it or not!  Please register your children ASAP.  Non-residents are welcome to register 24 hours before the program starts if there is available seating.

HOW FOOD DEFINES A REGION:  Following the baked beans supper at 6:30pm you may attend ‘Baked Beans and Fried Clams: How Food Defines a Region’.  Baked beans, fried clams, fish chowder, Indian pudding and so many foods are distinctive to New England. This talk offers a celebration of these regional favorites along with an examination of how contemporary life has distanced us from these classics. What makes them special and how do these foods define our region? Edie Clark draws from such diverse resources as Fannie Farmer, Julia Child, and Haydn S. Pearson for enlightenment and amusement as well as on her own experiences, writing and traveling for Yankee magazine over the past thirty years to places where baked beans are still featured prominently on the menu.

This program is sponsored through a grant from the NH Humanities To Go and the Friends of the Kimball Library.  Registration is not required for the talk, just for supper.  Light refreshments will be served.

LIBRARY CLOSED: The library will be closed on Monday, October 13, in honor of Columbus Day observed.  Please stock up accordingly.
