Kimball Library News


We have two other ‘Create & Express’ classes prepared for January as well. On Thurs., January 24 we’ll be making giant paper snowflakes for kids in grades 3 and up. On Thurs., January 31 we’ll be making snowman snow globes for grades K-3. Each of these classes meets from 4:00-5:00 p.m. and registration is required. Miss Judy will be your instructor for each class. If you’d like to see a sample of any of these Thursday crafts please visit our lobby.

Make a new year’s resolution to travel, and start on Tues., January 15 at 6:30 p.m.! Journey down to the equator and explore Ecuador’s Galapagos Islands through the camera lens of Dennis Krause. He and his wife recently visited the Galapagos with Lindblad Expeditions for an adventure of a lifetime. Their voyage aboard the National Geographic “Islander” traveled to seven different islands home to many species of mammals, reptiles and birds. Each island was inhabited by a unique group of creatures ranging from playful sea lions and sea turtles to primitive marine iguanas and giant tortoises to colorful blue-footed boobies and magnificent frigate birds. Join Dennis and his visual presentation of his day to day experiences on this ageless group of islands…The Galapagos. Refreshments will be served on this unique travel odyssey and, as most library events are - this program is sponsored by the generous Friends of the Kimball Library.

Pssst…we still have a few openings for the Tootie Flutes (ages 3-5 and ages 5-7) classes. Give us a shout to register.

  • We Will Keep the Light On

    The brightly lit electronic message board has been installed in front of the Hampstead Public Library, after much anticipation. The attractive sign will present rotating bulletins, hours, programs, activities, and special information…day and night. The Friends of Hampstead Public Library have pooled their profits with the Hollyhock Thrift Shop and other fundraising activities to make the electronic display possible. An attractive array of plants will highlight the base of the unit. Pictured are: Debra Hiett, right, library director, and Mary Lewis, a three-year library page, and Pinkerton Academy senior.
