Kimball Library News

---- — ATKINSON — This week’s tweet is for a particular story hour that will enhance your child’s knowledge of children’s literature and will put them in touch with other preschool library users. We offer a class titled, ‘Kiddie Lit’ for children ages 3-6 at three distinct times during the week. You are invited to join us for picture books, rhymes, finger plays or songs, and theme-related crafts or games. We offer this each Tuesday, from 11:30 a.m.-12:15 p.m.; Thursday, from 10:15-11:00 a.m.; and Fridays, from 10:15-11:00 a.m. Mrs. Birr teaches on Tuesday and Thursday, while Miss Celeste teaches on Friday. Registration is now open and classes sometimes fill to capacity so enroll soon to avoid disappointment.

Our museum tweet this week is for the Wenham Museum. The museum exhibits and collections are brought to life through a full schedule of programs and special events. All ages are engaged, entertained, and enlightened by special family programs, such as craft making, art, colonial life activities, musical performances, and more. From pre-school to adult, there is something for everyone. Passes are available Tues.-Sun. (select Monday holidays when museum is open). Each pass admits four people at half price every day that the museum is open. Prices are as follows: adult $4.00 with pass, children $3.00 with pass. Please thank ‘The Friends of Kimball Library’ for the generous donation of this pass.

Also making a comeback to fall programming is ‘PJ Peeps’ with the loveable Miss Betsy. PJ peeps are welcome to come in pajamas and listen to several stories and get a goodnight snack. This is a story time for families and their young children capable of listening to several picture books. We are serving multiple stories and a single snack. Please check our preschool classes if you are looking for an included craft and longer session. This is a drop-in event and non-resident friends are welcome. Stories are geared for ages 4-8. Parents are welcome in pjs also. Please note that we’ve moved ‘Peeps’ back to 6:30 p.m. to accommodate getting little ones to bed sooner.
