Kimball Library News 12/28/15

TEEN VOTES NEEDED: Vote for FLUME Nominee Titles Today!  Teens in grades 9-12 are invited to nominate a title for the 2016 Flume Award list.

Titles can be fiction or nonfiction books, with appeal to teens in grades 9-12. They must have a publication date within the last two years (no older than 2013). If the book is part of a series, it must be able to stand alone, meaning a reader doesn’t have to read the other books in the series to understand what’s going on.

Teens can submit their suggestions online using the link listed on our website, by inboxing our Facebook or Instagram page, sending a direct tweet to KimballLibrary, or by contacting  We will be accepting nominations until January 29, 2016.  Or ... they can use the 'old-fashioned' way of talking to Kathy Watson directly!  Every nomination is important and we need the teen input.

SNAP CIRCUITS:  The lab will be 'lighting up' on two Wednesdays in January at 6:30pm -- January 20th and 27th will be the opportunity for youth in grades 3-6 to take part.  Registration is required as we have a limited supply of kits.  Not sure what the fuss is about?  Come watch or talk to the facilitator in advance.  

6TH ANNUAL JACK FROST JAMBOREE: Did you know that this is our 6th annual Jack Frost Jamboree and each year it just keeps getting better?  We have so many games and activities planned!  Join us for some snappy winter fun on Saturday, January 23rd, between 10:30 and 2:30pm. Think 'winter carnival' with a twist.

Try these activities on for size:  Our custom miniature golf course in the stacks, winter crafty projects, games, games, games (and earning tickets for prizes!), fancy face painting, hot dogs, popcorn, hot chocolate, and possibly other surprises.

Dress accordingly as we do hope to have outdoor fun if we have even a little bit of the fluffy white stuff.  FROZEN FUN is included!

This is a free spectacular event sponsored by the Friends of the Library.  Bring the family!
