Kimball Library News 2/8/16

MORE STAY-CATION:  Are you sticking around Feb 22-26 with the kiddos?  Are you having a ‘Winter Stay-cation’ with us?  We have activities planned for the littles through the teenagers that you can register for right on our website.  Last week we featured the Monday & Tuesday events.  Did you miss it?  Check the website!  Now onto the 2nd half of vacation stay-cation week! (Please note residents have priority over all registered programming.)

LEGO MARATHON:  Come by on Wednesday, February 24th, between 10am and 6pm. We've got Legos and other building blocks of assorted sizes for you to share in community.  Playing at the library has some advantages--it keeps your house free from the blocks everywhere, and it's a good place to meet up with other like-minded Lego fiends or parents of Lego fiends.  This is a drop-in event and building structures will be put up and taken down throughout the day.  Pack up the kiddos and relax while the children put their imaginations to work.  Children under 10 may not be left unattended. (*We have Duplos for the littles.  :)

SNAP CIRCUITS: Register grades 3-6 to enter the Snap Circuits Lab on Wednesday, February 24th, from 6:30-7:30pm. The lab will give opportunity to explore and build in step by step fashion with the help of the facilitator using our electronics kits.  
CD WEAVING ART: Attention all artists! Also on Wednesday, February 24th, from 6:30-7:30pm we are offering CD weaving art for children in grades K and up. We will recycle CD disks and scrap yarn to make colorful works of art. The possibilities are endless as you choose the yarn colors you like and learn to use a plastic needle to weave. Join us as we compile our work into a beautiful display.

KIDS COLORING & PAINTING: Are YOU curious about the new trend in adult coloring?  Bring your children to the children's room between 10:30am and 12:30pm on Thursday, February 25th for some coloring and painting that is child-friendly -- meanwhile, you can sneak over and try out some coloring with adults in the meeting room.  We don't expect to supervise your child for 2 hours of coloring and/or painting, but they are welcome to stay in the children's room as long as they can focus on the activity. Come at any time during the two hour window.  Registered guests are welcome.

STAR WARS: May the force be with you as you attend this epic 'Star Wars' event on Thursday, February 25th, from 6:30-7:30pm. Engage in Jedi training, scavenge on our asteroid hunt, and defeat the enemy in storm trooper bowling! All this and more is waiting for you Padawans! (Register residents grades K -5, please.)

TAKE AND BAKE: Here's what's cooking! Join friends as we use simple recipes for you to combine, take home, and bake. Yummy treats will await you to enjoy in your very own home. Bring an apron if you have one & registered resident youth grades K and up will create some delightful treats on Friday, February, 26th, from 11am until noon.

KID TECH APPOINTMENTS: You can have a lesson on your gadget (iPod Touch, smart phone, tablet, etc.) and learn how to borrow and put a free e-book on it.  This is a basic session for resident youth.   We have 30 minute increments available in the afternoon on Friday, February, 26th, from 1-4pm.  Register online or if you have questions contact Kathy Watson for more information at or 603.362.5234.  (Parents may watch and learn.)
