ATKINSON —We have lots of holiday hoopla coming at you, and all of those types of events require registration and fill up quickly. Get out the datebook and make your reservations. We want your holidays to be happy!
BOXWOOD TREE CONSTRUCTION: Learn how to make a beautiful fresh boxwood tree to enjoy for the holidays. The boxwood tree is an elegant design made out of boxwood and decorated with velvet ribbon, gold glass balls, berries, and natural gypsophila.
This popular centerpiece will last for months and is perfect for your home or for those who want a small holiday tree to enjoy or a wonderful present to give away. Felicia Motherway will be your facilitator, and she will not let you leave with a Charlie Brown tree regardless of your skill set.
Space is limited for this event taking place on Mon., November 27, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Registration is secured by coming to the library and paying the materials fee of $36.00 in advance by cash or check (made out to Felicia Motherway). Make this a tradition by starting this year.
HOLIDAY SCRAPBOOKING CARDS & GIFT TAGS: Tis the season to get started! Join us on Thurs., November 30, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. for scrapbooking for the holidays. We can all create some lovely and unique holiday and gift cards for the upcoming seasons. Using stamping and scrapbook techniques, come learn how to create eight beautiful cards and some gift tags. Kimball Library’s own gifted scrapbooker, Cathie Piccolo, will be instructing the class along with Lois Powers. We will be providing pre-cut materials, embellishments, and support to make your custom greeting cards. Walk away with some unique cards and gift tags to use this holiday season or in the future.
Registration is required and seating is limited for this workshop. A non-refundable materials fee of $15.00 must be paid at the time of registration. Stop in at the library and register today before it’s too late! If you are experienced at scrapbooking and wish to bring your own supplies such as adhesives and craft scissors to work with, we encourage you to do so.
UPCOMING TUESDAY AFTERNOON MOVIES: We pull up the comfy chairs and plug in the popcorn machine on many (not all) Tuesday afternoons for free films at 1:00 p.m. The early birds get the best seats!
Coming attractions include “The Glass Castle” on Tues., November 14, a story about a young girl comes of age in a dysfunctional family of nonconformist nomads with a mother who's an eccentric artist and an alcoholic father who would stir the children's imagination with hope as a distraction to their poverty.
