KINGSTON - Do you have a collection of LEGO (R) pieces you or your children do not play with anymore? Why not consider donating them to the library? We are collecting LEGOs in the hopes of starting a LEGO building club, where kids can participate in building challenges that test their creativity and ingenuity to win prizes! Stop by the library during regular business hours, or call Miss Sue at 642-3521 with questions.

Join us at the Sanborn Regional High School for a film screening of “Koran by Heart”, followed by a discussion lead by Mary Catherine Bateson, Professor Emerita, George Mason University. “Koran by Heart” follows two young boys and one girl as they travel to Egypt’s International Holy Koran Competition, the most prestigious Koran reciting competition in the Muslim World. Bateson will provide fascinating insight on this topic. The discussion will be held on Thurs., December 5, at 7:00 p.m., at the Sanborn Regional High School.
