Kimball Library News 12/1/14

DROP N’ SHOPS CONTINUED:  Mark your calendar now for the following dates and times so you can register your children for December 6, 13, and 20 from 10:30am-12:30pm.  We are definitely “Santa’s Elves” for your **kids ages 6 and up.  We’ll occupy them with fun activities while you shop or wrap gifts.  Each Saturday will host a different teacher and unique projects.  Please send them with simple snacks and spill-proof beverages.  You’ll fa la la la la all the way home! 

**All 'Drop 'n Shop' participants must be at least 6 years of age to be left in the building without an adult.  Ages 6-9 must have an adult fill out a waiver on that morning to be left here in our care.  Children under 6 must be supervised by the attending caretaker.  Children ages 10 and up are allowed to stay without an adult or waiver according to library policy.  Thank you for your cooperation.  Residents only, please, for this very popular event.

We have advertised for all three of these events in detail as of this article.  Please register ASAP to avoid disappointment.

Details for the third ‘Holiday Drop ‘n Shop’ on December 20 from 10:30am-12:30pm are as follows:  On the third day of ‘Drop ‘n Shop’ my true love suggested to me...  ‘Let’s celebrate the unsung heroes of the season’!  This week we will be honoring the heroes of Christmas delivery – why, the reindeer, of course!  Join us for some reindeer gingerbread men decorating, a movie and a craft!

If you or your child would like to see a sample of the Saturday crafts, please drop by the library and see the projects for each week displayed in advance.  Stay tuned here each week as we keep you informed as to each Saturday event’s details. 

TECH TUTORIALS:  Do you still have that tech gadget the kids got you last year that you wish you knew how to put free library books on it to borrow?  We have a solution!  Register with Kathy Watson for a 30 minute lesson on how to make that gadget work for you.  This is a private basic tutorial designed for learning how to connect to our library ebooks/audiobooks and is generally limited to 30 minutes.  Your device must be compatible with Overdrive (iPad, most ereaders, and most tablets).  We can help you figure out if your ‘toy’ will work with us.  J

Also available is some very basic computer instruction.  This is for beginners only - email, basic surfing, setting up Facebook, creating a document, etc.  If you have questions you can ask for Kathy Watson at 603.362.5234.  (Kimball Library resident card holders only, please, for tech lessons.)

PRESCHOOL CLASS BREAK:  Please note that our preschool classes (Mother Goose on the Loose, Bitty Books, Kiddie Lit, and PJ Peeps) will be taking a holiday break from December 22nd-January 4.   All classes will resume the first week of January in 2015.
