KINGSTON — Do you have a collection of LEGO® pieces you or your children do not play with anymore? Why not consider donating them to the library? We are collecting LEGOs in the hopes of starting a LEGO building club, where kids can participate in building challenges that test their creativity and ingenuity to win prizes!

Stop by the library or call Miss Sue at 642-3521 with questions.

Come with your favorite doll or stuffed animal in your party clothes for an afternoon of games, crafts, and treats all inspired by the American Girl book series on Sat., December 14, from 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. This season’s tea will feature Rebecca, a lively girl with dramatic flair.

Make crafts and projects Rebecca would have done. Eat delectable treats and recipes from her time, and enjoy a sip of tea from real china. The cost is $10.00 per child and $3.00 per accompanying adult. Great for children grade one and up. Sign up is necessary.

Taking time to have a regular family night is a great way to create lasting memories. Join us on Fri., December 20 at 5:30 p.m., in the library meeting room for screenings of newly released DVDs.

Please bring a potluck snack to share; popcorn will be provided. This month, we will watch “Despicable Me 2”, rated PG.

Tickets are on sale for the Holiday Raffle, sponsored by the Friends of the Kingston Community Library! Choose from twenty-one fabulous, handmade gifts donated by local artists. Tickets are $1.00 each, $5.00 for six, and $10.00 for an arm’s length. The drawing will be on Thurs., December 19 at 10:00 a.m.
