Kimball Library News 12/5/16

Even though our regularly scheduled preschool classes are on break the last two weeks of December, there are many ways for you to use the library—especially during vacation week!  Consider taking out a museum pass to one of the following: Currier Museum of Art, Imajine That, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, John F. Kennedy Library and Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, Museum of Science, New England Aquarium, Peabody Essex Museum, Seacoast Science Center, Strawbery Banke, or Zoo New England.  Reserve your passes online or in person.  

GAMETIME: Up to a bit of group fun? Join us for game hour, from 4:30 – 5:30 on December 2nd, 9th, 16th, January 6th, 13th and 20th.  For 6 weeks on Fridays, our conference room will be the spot to go to enjoy a little competition with friends and neighbors.  Each week we will offer a different team game of choice. For starters we will do a “grab it, guess it, pass it game” using Electronic Catchphrase.  This is a team game that requires no previous experience.  This is so quick and exciting that you’ll leave wishing you had more time to play.

Other future games may include: Scattergories, Yahtzee or Uno.  Perhaps you have a game you would like to share with the group or the group may like one particular game so much that they prefers to play it again.

This is a perfect time to meet up with other adults who enjoy some fun and challenge that board games offer.  This particular series of games is for high school students and older.

*Please register, as space is limited however a 6-week commitment is not required. Come when you can! Let the games begin!

VACATION WEEK MOVIE: A girl named Sophie encounters the Big Friendly Giant who, despite his intimidating appearance, turns out to be a kind-hearted soul who is considered an outcast by the other giants because, unlike them, he refuses to eat children.

This film is rated PG and the run time is 117 minutes.  Popcorn will be served. Feel free to bring movie candy and a bottle of water.  It is the library policy that children under the age of 10 may not be left unattended.  

Please join us on Tuesday, December 27th, at 1pm.

CREATIVE WORDS: Want your child to express their creativity through art without all the mess in your house? Are you interested in your child practicing their reading skills in unique and engaging ways?

‘Creative Words’ will reinforce key reading skills through arts and crafts. Your child will be introduced to a variety of art mediums in three stations. Children aged 3 to 6 will love the fun themes each week and enjoy the ability to explore on their own pace with a child-directed format.

Limited spots are available.  ‘Creative Words’ is restarting in January on Thursdays.  There are two unique time slots—choose either 11:30am or 1:30pm.  You’ll want to register your child right away as to not miss out.  You will stay on the registration roster until April 20th.

HOLIDAY HOURS: The Kimball Library will be closed from December 24-26 and again on January 2.  Please stock up accordingly, and have Happy Holidays from all of us!
