Kimball Library News 4/10/17

CUPCAKE WARS: It’s time for our 3rd annual ‘Cupcake Wars’!  Each year there are fun and fabulous entries!  Tweens and teens (grades 4-12) register in advance and complete their decorating right at the library.  This year’s fun and tasty event is being held on Tuesday, April 25th, at 6:30pm.  Register ASAP and start dreaming about your entry. Our theme is ‘Build a Better World’ in anticipation of summer reading events.

PARTICIPATION RULES~ 1. Anyone can participate in grades 4-12.  This is for singles--not a partner event.  2. Each participant must prepare 6 un-decorated cupcakes prior to the event.  You must bring all your decorating tools and supplies that you will need.  3. AT the event, you’ll have 30 minutes to decorate them all. TWO of the cupcakes selected by you will be used for judging.  4. Two of the cupcakes will be used for judging—the other portion will be shared with other contestants and judges.  5. Cupcakes will be judged on the following criteria: Appearance, taste, creativity, clean station, and presentation to judges. Participant may make any flavor of cupcake desired but, please stay within the theme of the event ‘BUILD A BETTER WORLD” in anticipation of summer reading events!

We sample each other’s work after the judging.  Be prepared to share.  :)

 *The winner will get a ‘small’ prize.  Parents, this is for kids and supposed to be fun and not highly competitive.  The t/weens are expected to do their own baking and decorating.

QUESTIONS?  Ask Kathy Watson, Assistant Director/Youth Services Director

This event is in partnership with Bre’s Ice Creamery.  They are always SWEET to us!

On Wednesday the 26th, we will be having ‘Fun with Apps’ starting at 6:30pm for grades 4-6.  Do you love to find new ways to use apps on a phone, tablet or computer? Join us to work as a group to find interesting ways to use apps in our library.

Swap your face with a character on the cover of your favorite book with the Face Swap app. Learn how to bookmark and 'shelve' books you have read and want to read on Goodreads app. Find some new choose your own adventure and audio book apps that you can use at home. Even find tips on how you can organize lists, homework assignments, and chores with the Post It app.

No need to bring your electronics. We will provide several for the group to use.  (Parents, these are great tips for you, too!  Let your child teach you after they come to the class.)

If you're tired of hearing 'don't play with your food' at home, come play with your food at the library on Thursday, April 27th. ! Make a macaroni bracelet, do mosaic art with cheerios, and see what kind of foods you can stamp and paint with. Stay for a little or a long time and feel free to drop in any time between 2:30 and 5:30.  Register ages 3-13 so we will have enough supplies.

On Friday the 28th, ‘Where is Waldo?’  

Can you help us find the many Waldo's around the library? We are also LOOKING for help making our own Where's Waldo mural! Join in on the Wacky Waldo day. Stay for a little or a long time and drop in any time between 10:30 and 2:30.  Register ages 3 and up.
