ATKINSON — Remember your commitment! For those who are taking advantage of the ‘Universal Class’ link on our website, please know that this particular service will be discontinued by the end of this calendar year. This should serve as a great impetus to get back to class and finish up so you can earn your certificate of completion. Ready, set, go!

Remember Gwendolyn! Enjoy a fun-filled afternoon for the budding dancers and story lovers in your family on Tues., November 27, at 4:30 p.m., when ballerinas from The European School of Dancing take center stage at the Kimball Library, Atkinson. Author David Ira Rottenberg will read his lovely picture book, “Gwendolyn, the Graceful Pig”, while the dancers perform the story. As an added treat, a mini-movement lesson will be offered to the children in the audience after the performance and Rottenberg will sign copies of his book which will be available for purchase. This author/dance event is free. All ages can relate to overcoming obstacles and pursuing what you love. Bring your cameras for great photo opportunities with the ballerinas or the author.

Remember Hawke! Lady Hawke, a loveable black Lab, is a certified reading therapy dog with Therapy Dogs International. She is gentle with children of all ages and her next visit is Tues., November 20, from 4:00-5:00 p.m. We need you (emerging readers or any readers) to come and read to Lady Hawke! She’s waiting to hear some great stories, and only you can help! Please come, bring your favorite book, or borrow one of ours, and spend some time reading to our friend, Hawke. Please register for this event. If no one registers she will not come.

Remember your tummy! Are you feeling a little peckish? Just sit back and relax because kids are cooking on Mon., November 19, from 4:30-5:30 p.m. Register your children in grades 3-5. Kids are invited to learn some new habits for the kitchen and to have fun cooking together. This month on the menu is Chinese fried rice so perhaps it is time to practice with the chopsticks! The fun is in the making and in the eating. Enrollment is limited so do not delay your registration.
