Kimball Library News

ATKINSON —Imajine That museum will be making a visit to the library on Thurs., June 26, at 10:30 a.m. to hold a little art class for ages 3-6 revolving around a summer theme. We are delighted to have them and are limiting registration to 10 children per the museums’ request. Please jump on the website or our phone before it’s too late. Atkinson residents will have priority seating.

Big Truck Night was such a success last year that we are not only planning to have this be an annual event, but we are planning to add more vehicles. Every age enjoys getting a chance to get up close and personal with police cars, fire engines, and trucks of all sizes. Come on over and bring the kids! All ‘kids’ are welcome to view the vehicles, climb aboard, chat with the drivers and, in some cases, honk the horn. Remember to bring the cameras!

Registration is required for all ages, so we have information readily available in case of inclement weather and/or change of plans. Non-resident friends are more than welcome.

A Concert in the Courtyard is not only happening on Thurs., June 19, at 6:30 p.m. with the Timberlane Community Band, but we also are having a concert on Wed., July 2, at 6:30 p.m. Join us as we keep our courtyard dancing with Al Derben Trio, a three-guitar jazz band featuring local New Hampshire artists Woody Allen on guitar, Doug Bennett on guitar and vocals, and Bruce Derr on pedal steel guitar.

Playing mostly instrumental jazz standards from the 1940s, the band’s nod to jazz greats like Cole Porter and Nat King Cole, will give the evening a special touch with a smooth swing feel.

This entertaining program is free of charge and open to the public. This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Kimball Library.
