Kimball Library News 5/25/15

SUMMER READING REGISTRATION: Rolling registration for both age groups (grades K-5) and (grades 6 and up) starts June 8th and you may register in person up until the end of July.  Last week we highlighted the elementary age group, this week we’ll tackle the t/weens ‘UNMASK’.

UNMASK: ‘UNMASK registration is open to ATK youth entering grade 6 and up (as of Fall 2015).

Register as early as Monday, June 8th, by coming into the Kimball Library to receive your $5 reading bucks credit. Use it to pay down your library fines or receive future fine credit.  Registration is open until the end of July.

Each time you visit the library after you have registered and check something out, you may put your checkout receipt in a raffle jar.  Be sure that your name is on your slip and your phone number is on the back.  You can scan your library card into your phone or iPod in the RedLaser or Keychain app so you always have it available to check items out and receive a receipt. If you use another family member’s card then please put your name as on the back as well.

Drop your receipt in a raffle jar near the main desk to be eligible for random prize drawings held weekly.  Additional receipts (which means more chances to win) will be given to any UNMASK tweens or teens that register and participate in any of our events.  Prizes may include snacks, books, sports paraphernalia, gift cards, Water Country & Canobie Lake passes and more! You need not be present to win.  Prizes will be drawn randomly throughout the summer after the kick-off (June 24) up until August 8.

Our goal is to have you belong.  IF the teens/tweens get at least 500 receipts in the raffle, we will be offering an UNMASK OVERNIGHT LOCK-IN at the end of August where we will have pizza, snacks, movies, games, and other fun jazz. We are longing for YOU to be part of our SUPER library and SUPERHERO community.  Participate, UNMASK, and win!

Summer reading events have a required registration.  *Register early to avoid disappointment.

SUMMER READING KICKOFF~NORMAN NG MAGIC:  Norman combines original and amazing magic tricks with his unique style of storytelling, action, and audience interaction.  The curtain is pulled back and the audience is invited to a world where anything is possible.

Please register all ages so we can reach you in case of a change in venue due to inclement weather and for the head count.  Non-residents are welcome.   HOLD the date—Wednesday, June 24th, at 6:30pm.  You will not want to miss this fantastic event!

This event was generously sponsored by the Elizabeth Smith Estate and is in partnership with Atkinson Academy.
