Kimball Library News

ATKINSON — Winter vacation week for many of the local schools is right around the corner (February 24-March 1) and we’re finishing our series on ‘What shall I do with the kids?” Please take advantage of our varied activities and events as well as our museum passes. If you head to our website and click on the calendar events icon you’ll see the details for each activity or museum. Plan ahead and stay tuned on the Kimball Library blog if you missed any of our previous articles.

Thurs., February 27, is day four of our vacation week events. Staff from ‘Imajine That’ museum is visiting and will hold a special art class for children ages 3-6 at 10:30 a.m. The limit is ten children maximum. Please sign up when you know you can commit as we’d prefer you didn’t take a seat from someone else. Kimball cardholders only, please. From ‘Imagine That’ -- Today is the Art Studio: Love, Love, Love. We will read a story about caring and sharing and make something special to share with someone you love.

Also on day four from 6:30-8:30 p.m. is T/ween Movie Night showing ‘Thor: The Dark World’ for ages 10 and up. Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. Invite friends (from any town) and register them and yourself! Please respect our age restrictions. Feel free to bring beverages in closed containers and movie candy.

We are rounding out the week on Friday by having a LEGO marathon in the children’s room from 10:15 a.m.-7:15 p.m. We’ve got Legos and other building blocks of assorted sizes for you to share in community. Playing at the library has some advantages-it keeps your house free from the blocks everywhere, and it’s a good place to meet up with other like-minded Lego fiends or parents of Lego fiends. This is a drop-in event and building structures will be put up and taken down throughout the day. Pack up the kiddos and relax while the children put their imaginations to work.

If you haven’t already, do visit us at and peruse our many albums and see if you can find yourself or family members.
