Kimball Library News 3/21/16

STAR WARS: Calling all Star Wars fans, junkies, and cult members!  On Tuesday, April 5th, we are showing Star Wars Episode VII “The Force Awakens” at 1pm (no registration necessary) and again at 6pm (register PLEASE).  Popcorn will be made in advance and the popper shut down so we need a head count for the 2nd show to be prepared for our guests.  Please note this film is rated PG 13 and we do not restrict ages.  Children under the age of 10 may not be left unattended.

It’s hard to believe, but spring vacation break is right around the corner for the Timberlane District, and we have plenty of events planned for the youth in your life.  If your idea of vacation is staycation, then the Kimball Library has plans for your children and teens. See below and stay tuned for the rest of the week next week!

FOAM FUN FOR EVERYONE: Register children in grades K-5 for foam and paper crafting. We have some foam and paper kits that can be put together easily and some foam you must design yourself. We don't expect to supervise your child for the full time but they are welcome to stay in the children's room on Monday, April 25th, between 4-5:30pm as long as they can focus on the activity and have a good time. Younger children may need help.

CRAFTING A TREASURE CHEST: We have darling unfinished treasure chests for your little ones ages 2-6.  Decorate your treasure chest on Tuesday, April 26th at 10:30am and take it home. Hide your goodies inside!  Registration is required as we have a specific amount of chests.

GET IN THE GAME CUPCAKE WARS: Register Grades 4-12 for Tuesday, April 26th, 6:30-7:45pm!  Each participant must prepare 6 un-decorated cupcakes prior to the event.  You must bring all your decorating tools and supplies that you will need.  AT the event, you’ll have 30 minutes to decorate them all. Two of the cupcakes will be used for judging—the other portion will be shared with other contestants and judges.  Cupcakes will be judged on the following criteria: Appearance, taste, creativity, clean station, and presentation to judges. Participant may make any flavor of cupcake desired but, please stay within the theme of the event ‘GET IN THE GAME” in anticipation of summer reading events!

The winner will get a ‘sweet’ prize.  Parents, this is for kids and supposed to be fun and not highly competitive.  The t/weens are expected to do their own baking and decorating.

QUESTIONS?  ASK Kathy Watson.  This event is in partnership with Bre’s Ice Creamery! Sweet!

T/WEEN T-SHIRT BOOK BAGS: Get the key to cool with an awesome DIY t-shirt book bag.  We'll be making t-shirt totes on Wednesday, April 27th, at 6:30pm that will have you styling and the envy of all your friends.

You MUST bring--at least ONE t-shirt that would be large enough for books.  (I'm sure you'll have time to make more than one, so the more you bring the better!) AND a positive I CAN DO IT attitude.

 You CAN bring--fabric scissors, (the more sharp fabric scissors everyone brings the less waiting around time for everyone), embellishments (safety pins, pony beads, ribbon--anything you can attach to your bag) AND friends.  Please ALL register participants so I know how many peeps to plan for.  This is for grades 4-12, only.
