Kimball Library News 9/14/15

BEDTIME MATH CRAZY 8’S CLUB: Crazy 8s is an over-the-top after-school club that’s designed to get kids fired up about math. Every week kids get to build stuff, run and jump, make music, make a mess...and make friendships at the same time. They will get to do mischief making activities like Glow-in-the-Dark Geometry, Bouncy Dice and Toilet Paper Olympics, and they’ll get to take home some cool gadgets, too.  It’s time for math to become the cool thing to do after school!  

This particular session is facilitated by Ms. Celeste for children in grades 3-5, and it is running at Kimball Library on Thursdays from 4:30-5:30pm for consecutive sessions beginning on October 1 through November 19.   Registration is required.  Please know that when you sign up you are committing to all 8 weeks.  This is a math curriculum that can be explored online at  

Disclaimer: This Crazy 8’s Club is similar curriculum to the class that was run from April to May for grades K-2.  Grade 3 children who were in the spring class may find the concepts more challenging, but the activities will be similar.

TWEEN book discussion (Register Grades 5-7): The book of the month is 'Every Soul a Star' by Wendy Mass. Told from three distinct voices and perspectives, Wendy Mass weaves an intricate and compelling story about strangers coming together, unlikely friendships, and finding one's place in the universe.

We’ll meet Wednesday, October 7th, from 6:30-7:30pm to discuss the book selected and have first dibs on getting a book for the November gathering. Candy and thought-provoking conversation will be served. All interested tweens are welcome. (Not young adults, not children -- hence, TWEENagers in grades 5-7.) Please ask for a copy of the current book at the front desk.  Non-resident friends are welcome.

WHAT SHALL WE DO TODAY?  ‘I’m bored.’  Do you ever hear that coming from your children?
A voice from the library recites, “What shall we do today? What shall we do today? Let's make a candy fall treat that's fit to eat, and then be on your way!”

Please register your children in grades K-5 for this edible fall scene activity taking place on Saturday, October 10, from 11-12 noon in the children’s room.
