Kimball Library News

ATKINSON —Ready, set …Summer reading registration is on as of June 17! This year’s theme is underground for all age groups. The preschool and elementary children will be participating in ‘DIG into Reading’ and t/weens entering grades 6 and up will be able to join ‘Beneath the Surface’. The younger kids will have a slew of activities to choose from and rewards to obtain, and the older youth will have activities as well as opportunities to win prizes from the weekly raffle. There is a link on the calendar starting June 17. Be sure to come in and get the rest of the registration jazz.

Once your elementary-aged children have registered, they will receive a summer reading bag with the logo that will have inside a reading log to keep track of their minutes and a calendar listing all the amazing programs we will be having this summer at the Kimball Library! They will also receive a mini newspaper and a coupon for a free kid’s breakfast at Eggie’s, free pretzels at Annie’s, and a free kids’ meal at UNOs.

After they tally the minutes they read each week, come into the library to record them with us. We will enter your reading minutes once each week starting on July 2. On week one, they will receive a shovel to put on our walls. When they have completed the required 100 minutes, they can pick a prize and put a sticker on their shovel to show their progress each week. Please check in with us at times other than immediately before or after a program to avoid lines and waiting.

Please remember to register for the specific events you want to attend. On Thurs., June 27, 6:30-7:30 p.m. we will ‘Dig’ The Toe Jam Puppet Band (all ages) SRP Kick-Off! Bring your family and friends and join us on the patio lawn for live entertainment. This particular show does not demand registration. In case of inclement weather, we’ll go to Atkinson Academy.
