---- — 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.

Lindsay and Her Puppet Pals are coming to the library on Fri., December 6, at 5:00 p.m. Lindsay brings a huge collection of lovingly handcrafted, life sized hand puppets and marionettes. Ideal for children ages 3-8.

Start a reading tradition with your daughter with a Mother-Daughter Book Club. This program is ideal for girls in grades 4-8, and their mothers. Books for the January meeting will be available for pickup. Tues., December 10, at 6:00 p.m., in the Teen Room.

Come with your favorite doll or stuffed animal in your party cloths for an afternoon of games, crafts, and treats all inspired by the American Girl book series on Sat., December 14, 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. This season’s tea will feature Rebecca, a lively girl with dramatic flair, growing up in 1914. Make crafts and projects Rebecca would have done. Eat delectable treats and recipes from her time, and enjoy a sip of tea from real china! The cost is $10.00 per child and $3.00 per accompanying adult. Great for children grade one and up. Sign up is necessary, as we have sold out for the last 3 years!
