Kimball Library News 11/10/14

THE TEENS HAVE VOTED: The teens have voted with their presence that Anime Club is here to stay.  Join us on Thursday, December 18, from 6-7:30pm where we will be watching anime, playing anime twister, making new friends, and enjoying some snacks.  Feel free to bring sketch books to draw or read manga while we watch.  We will be watching anime with ratings equivalent to PG-13. Register grades 6-12 and non-resident teens are welcome.

INTERESTED IN LEARNING MAH JONG?: Mah Jong is on Mondays from 1:00-4:30pm.  We have experienced players enjoying it each week, but once again we are signing up new players. Newbies are welcome-we’ll teach you!

Mah Jong is a fun rummy-like game played with tiles rather than cards.  We will play American Mah Jong and will be following the rules for American Mah Jong.  One of the main differences is that American Mah Jong uses a card of Standard Hands, against which all games are played.  These cards are distributed by the National Maj Jong League and changed annually. We will have these cards on hand for all to use.

This game has brought people in the community together for a fun-filled afternoon and so we are offering to teach again to anyone who wants to learn.   It does require some strategy as well as some luck to play.  A small amount of time and effort is needed to become familiar with the principles of the game and the rules of the game.  Registration is required so we’ll know how many tables to prepare.  Please sign up online or give us a call.

MEET Plaistow YMCA DIRECTOR: Tracy Fuller, Regional Executive Director, will be here to listen from the community what they would like at their YMCA on Thursday, November 20th, at 6:30pm.  Come and learn about all the current services the YMCA offers and what new exciting events are planned.  Light healthy snacks will be provided.  All residents from the Atkinson area are invited to this free event.

A FEW OPENINGS:  Make letters with your bodies, learn some alphabet sign language, run and jump to rhyming words, and dance, dance, DANCE!  Learn to WIGGLE into WORDS.  We have two spaces left for Thursday, November 20th, at 10:30am.  This fun activity is for ages 3-6 and your child must be registered in order to participate.

HOLIDAY CLOSING: Please note that we are closed on both Thursday, November 27 and Friday, November 28 for a Thanksgiving hiatus.  We are open on Saturday the 29th.  Have a happy Thanksgiving!  We know that we are especially thankful for all our wonderful patrons!
