Kimball Library News 6/6/16

The summer reading events keep happening!  Keep reading and keep *registering!  Children entering grades K-5 register for ‘On Your Mark, Get Set, READ!’ and tweens and teens entering grades 6-college register for ‘Get in the Game READ’.  Participation is made simple by receiving chances for prizes by visiting the library and checking items out.  It’s not too late to get started!  

THE RUNNING DREAM: We combined the tween (grades 5-7) and teen (grades 8-12) book discussions in the summer for one awesome time of candy and chat on Wednesday, July 6th, at 6:30pm.  The summer reading theme is GET IN THE GAME, and this book exemplifies how to get back in the game.  Register for the event and then pick up a copy of the book in the children's room or at the main desk so you can be ready to GET IN THE GAME.  We have plenty of books waiting.

‘Jessica thinks her life is over when she loses a leg in a car accident. She's not comforted by the news that she'll be able to walk with the help of a prosthetic leg. Who cares about walking when you live to run?  With the support of family, friends, a coach, and her track teammates, Jessica may actually be able to run again. But that's not enough for her now. She doesn't just want to cross finish lines herself—she wants to take Rosa with her.’

BLAST FROM THE PAST: Get ready, get set, go! Ever wonder what games kids played before you were born? How about what your parents and grandparents did for fun? Travel back in time as we enjoy action games from the past. We'll have some good, clean fun and appreciate a BLAST FROM THE PAST!  

Register children entering grades K-5 for some good old fashioned fun on Thursday, July 7th, at 6:30pm.

*Summer reading events have a required registration.  Register early to avoid disappointment.  Please be kind to others and only register if you know you can come.  Thank you!*
