Kimball Library News 8/24/15

FALL BOOK & BAKE SALE: The Friends of Kimball Library present their annual Fall Book & Bake sale on **September 26th, 8:00am – 3:00pm.  A large selection of fiction and non-fiction books will be available.  Come early for the best selection and the baked goods!

Most books are $2.00 or less.  The best part is that all proceeds go to adult and children’s programs offered throughout the year at the Kimball Library.
If you would like to donate books, please drop off at the library by Thursday, September 24th, by 3pm.

(**The library is open for library business the normal Saturday hours 10-3 the day of the sale.)

FRUIT & VEGGIE PRINTS: Have you ever created art using fruits and veggies? Use your imagination to roll corn cobs in paint and create interesting patterns. Use oranges and lemons to decorate and make a collage. We'll try various produce to 'produce' works of art!

Drop by on Saturday, September 12th, between 11am and 1pm (come when you can and leave when you must) in the two hour time frame to join in the fun! This activity is geared for grades K-5.  Registration is not required
THE NEPAL CHRONICLES:  When travel writer Dan Szczesny and his wife, Meenakshi, traveled to Nepal to marry in Kathmandu and trek to Everest Base Camp, they knew the journey would be difficult.  What they didn't realize was how life changing their time in the land of mountains would be.
From the chaos of Kathmandu's super-charged streets to the tranquil but challenging trails of the Himalayas, The Nepal Chronicles is a deeply felt exploration of the culture and history of one of the world's most complex places.

We invite you to join us on Tuesday, September 22nd, from 6:30-7:30pm and travel to Nepal with all of us.  The Friends of the Kimball Library are graciously hosting this event.

Dan has written for a wide variety of regional and national publications.  He is currently Associate Publisher of The Hippo, now NH's largest weekly Arts and Entertainment journal.  He lives in Manchester, NH with his wife.

LABOR DAY WEEKEND:  Kimball Library will be closed for Labor Day Weekend (September 5-7).  Two day loan DVDs checked out on Thursday, 9/3 and Friday, 9/4 will be due on Tuesday, 9/8.  Stock up accordingly, and have a safe and pleasant holiday weekend.
