The magic tree house book club is having a summer meeting on Thursday, August 18th, at 4:30pm.
Eight-year-old Jack, his seven-year-old sister, Annie, and Peanut the mouse ride in a tree house to the Amazon rain forests, where they encounter giant ants, flesh-eating piranhas, hungry crocodiles, and wild jaguars.
This month's selection is 'Afternoon on the Amazon' by Mary Pope Osborne. It is the 6th book in the series. Get ready for adventure as we travel in time.
The club is for 1st & 2nd graders. Registration is required and books are available in the children's room.
WATER GUN PAINTING: Come blast water guns filled with paint to create beautiful pictures. Be creative while you enjoy some good old-fashioned summer fun. Register your children (ages 4 and up) to participate on Wednesday, August 10th, from 4:30-5:15pm. Capture the last few fun events before school starts.
MOVIE IN THE COURTYARD: Join the Atkinson Recreation Department for an outdoor movie in the Kimball Library Courtyard on Thursday, August 11th, starting at 7:15pm.
Zootopia is a city filled with talking animals. When a fox has to run from a crime he didn't commit, the best cop in the city has to chase him down. That cop happens to be a rabbit. Things are not always what they seem in Zootopia. The fox and rabbit become embroiled in a conspiracy that threatens to bring them both down. They'll have to work together to find out what's really going on in Zootopia. Can enemies save each other's lives and become friends?
The Kimball Courtyard will be sprayed with professional organic pesticides before the movie to help make this a bug free environment.
This fun film is rated PG and has a run time of 1 hour, 45 minutes. Popcorn and drinks will be served. Bring beach chairs, blankets, or use our built-in courtyard seating.
