Kimball Library News 2/6/17

STAY-CATION EVENTS: We have a variety of school vacation week activities planned.  Please register for all events in advance to avoid disappointment. 

MONDAY, FEB 27: Travel Musically Around the World (Infants to Age 6 at 10:30am)--Explore multiple different languages through song, rhythm, and rhyme. Be ready to get up and clap your hands or move your feet to the beat.  Miss Michelle and Miss Kathy will have you humming and singing some familiar tunes as well as teaching you some new ones. Exposure to foreign language deepens brain activity and lightens the heart! Register the littles ASAP.  

Kids Knit-a-Bit (Ages 9-19 at 2:30pm)--If you already know how to knit bring your project.  If you are new to it, we have easy scarf kits to purchase for $5 that includes pattern and yarn.  Bring size 8 needles if you have them.  Our little flock of knitters is growing! Come join the fun. 

Brown Bag Club (Grades 3 & 4 at 6:30pm)--Bring a supper and have fun sharing what 
you think. We’ll have drinks and desserts. The book is 'The Strange Case of Origami Yoda' by Tom Angleberger.  We have multiple copies here waiting at the library for you to check out.  

TUESDAY, FEB 28:  BINGO for Books (Grades Pre K to Grade 5 between 1-3pm)--It's time to try your luck at BINGO and win books! How many books can you win? Come when you can and leave when you must.  This window of time is so you can stay a little or a lot.

STEVE BLUNT CONCERT (All Ages at 6:30pm)-- Steve Blunt, an award-winning children’s musician from NH, will use stories, props, musical instruments and his popular songs to engage kids of all ages. Get ready to tap your toes and move and groove along! 

About Steve:  Steve is a self-proclaimed part-time music teacher, part-time singer/storyteller. He started creating songs for children back in the mid-90’s, while working as a middle-school English teacher and raising a young daughter. He now has six CD’s of funny songs for kids & families and lives in Nashua, NH.  He is wildly popular with school age children, but he will have tweens and adults singing along as well. 

Do not miss out on this indoor concert! Register the entire family. 

WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY:  (Teasers—Snap Circuits, Making Cheeseburger Pizza, ‘Stargirl’, Creative Young Artists, Girls Who Code, Sea Adventures, and Zumba!  PHEW!  We’ve got something for everyone.  Be sneaky and check it out on the online calendar or stay tuned for next week’s article!)

MAH JONG:  Whether you are a novice or an experienced Mah Jong player, come join the fun!  Cozy up in the meeting room of the library, share some laughs, and make some new friends.  Registration is required so we’ll know how many tables to prepare.  Please sign up online or give us a call.

Mah Jong is a fun rummy-like game played with tiles rather than cards.  It does require some strategy as well as luck to play. A small amount of time and effort is needed to become familiar with the principles of the game and the rules of the game.  We have a patient teacher waiting for you.
