CHILLY CRAFTS: Want to ‘chill’ with us on Saturday, January 14th? Practice winter with us and make a few cute chilling crafts to take home.  Start time is flexible–come anytime between 10:30 - 12:30 and stay as long as you like. Register ASAP for this event so we’ll have enough supplies on hand. Children under age 6 need adult help.  The projects are geared toward kindergarten through grade 5, but precocious younger ones may try.

7th ANNUAL JACK FROST JAMBOREE: Do you want to know the best way to be excited about the cold month of January?   Put the Jack Frost Jamboree on your calendar.  We’ll have fun that will warm you right down to your toes!  It’s exciting for children and adults that the7th Annual Jack Frost Jamboree is right around the corner. It will be great competing in games and winning prizes, creating winter crafts, stomping on the hill with snowshoes (weather permitting), playing miniature golf in the stacks, eating hot dogs and popcorn, drinking hot chocolate, and greeting old friends!  Once again we’ll have crafts, games, and other treats for the kids. We’ll have a newly themed golf course winding through the stacks as well as refreshments for most of the day.   This spectacular family event will take place on Saturday, January 21st, from 10:30am-2:30pm even though our doors will be open for our usual Saturday hours (10am-3pm).  Take advantage of the flurry of activities and stop by for all or part of the day.  This fun and frosty event is sponsored by our totally ‘chill’ ‘Friends of Kimball Library’.
