Kimball Library News 10/19/15

TEENS CHANGE THE DATE:  Generally the teens meet the second Wednesday of each month to discuss the book of the month, but in November that lands on the Veterans Day holiday.  We will be meeting instead on Tuesday, November 10th, at 6:30pm to have conversation and chat regarding the novel, “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl’ by Jesse Andrews. 

Rachel has been diagnosed with leukemia—-cue extreme adolescent awkwardness—-but a parental mandate has been issued and must be obeyed. When Rachel stops treatment, Greg and Earl decide the thing to do is to make a film for her, which turns into the Worst Film Ever Made and becomes a turning point in each of their lives.  

I guarantee we’ll have lots to talk about with the teen popular book.  Get your copy at the main desk now!

*FAMILY SCARECROW MAKING:  It's family fun time on Saturday, November 7th, from 12:30-1:30pm! Let's put those fall leaves to good use and come together to create scarecrows! We'll use autumn leaves and a bit of know-how to build a family friend to display in your yard.

*Families will need to provide a hat and set of clothing for their scarecrow.  Registration is required for this fun activity in person at the children’s desk.  Atkinson residents will be given first priority.  Non-residents are welcome to register on November 2nd.

BIBBIDI-BOBBIDI-BOO: You are enthusiastically invited to attend a movie night at the library. The feature film is the latest released version of ‘Cinderella’.  

Popcorn will be provided to our guests. The movie will begin at 6:00pm SHARP. You are welcome to bring a paper bag supper or movie treats to enjoy. Water bottles are encouraged.  Non-residents are welcome.
When her father unexpectedly passes away, young Ella finds herself at the mercy of her cruel stepmother and her daughters. Never one to give up hope, Ella's fortunes begin to change after meeting a dashing stranger.  Running time is 1hr. 54min. Rated PG.

Registration is required for this event taking place on Friday, November 13th, at 6pm.  

HOLIDAY HOURS: We will be closed in honor of our Veterans on Wednesday, November 11th, for Veterans Day.  We are grateful for their service.  Please stock up accordingly.
