Kimball Library News 9/21/15

NEW MGOL SECTION ADDED: On September 14th we had a record 30 children participate in the 10:30 Mother Goose on the Loose class.  This was an enjoyable problem to have.  In response to the large demand, we have created a second class offering at 11:15 on Mondays.  Register online or give us a call for either the 10:30 or 11:15 session.  You may join anytime during the year.  You may also call and ask for Kathy Watson, Youth Services Director, for questions regarding this class.

Mother Goose is a fun-filled thirty minute interactive session that uses rhymes, songs, puppets, musical instruments, and more to stimulate the learning process of babies and toddlers.  Parents, grandparents, and caretakers often linger after the session to allow for playtime and socializing for all ages.  Fostering an early delight in language could enhance child development and build strong, healthy families.

WHY READ TO BABY? • Phonological awareness — Being able to hear the beginning and ending sounds that make up words will help children sound out words when they begin to read • Print motivation — Children who enjoy books and reading will be curious about how to read and will read more • Print awareness — Children become familiar with how books work • Vocabulary — Children need to know the meaning of words to understand what they are reading

Bonus: There are some upcoming Mondays when we are closed or the Monday class is unavailable due to staffing.  On those weeks, a Thursday drop-in session is available for anyone interested.  Please check the calendars for dates. 

SKYWATCH WITH NH ASTRONOMICAL SOCIETY:  The New Hampshire Astronomical Society will be offering their telescopes for an evening's observing of celestial wonders on Tuesday, October 13th, from 6:30-8:00pm.  There will be a brief indoor presentation explaining details concerning the sorts of celestial objects we will be looking at first-hand, through the telescopes.  The viewing area will be in the Kimball Library Courtyard.

Please register for this starry night.  The rain date for this event will be November 17th at 6:30 PM.
