This Saturday is the Friends of the Library annual book sale.  The door will be opened after the parade and go until 3:00 p.m.   The Cultural Room will have at least 4 woodcrafters showing their wares.  Be sure to stop in and see the wonderful items and visit with them.  A few members of the ??? Photography club will also be exhibiting their framed photographs.  That will be fun to see also.  There are many talented photographers in the area.

            New CD audiobooks added this week are:  “Smash Cut” by Sandra Brown;  “On the Grind” by Stephen J. Cannell;  “Silent Mercy” by Linda Fairstein;  “The Beach House” by Jan Green;  “The King’s Speech” by Mark Logue;  “The Fire” by Katherine Neville;  “Don’t Blink” by James Patterson and Howard Roughan;  “Gideon’s Sward” by Douglas Preston;  “The Informationist” by Taylor Stevens; and a few more audiobooks from the past. 

            New adult fiction:  “The Ideal Man” by Julie Garwood;  “Victory and Honor” by W. E. B. Griffin;  “A Gathering of Finches” by Jane Kirkpatrick;  “Robert Ludlum’s The Bourne Dominion” by Eric Van Lustbader;  “A Bond Never Broken” by Judith Miller;  “Merciless” by Diana Palmer;  “Acceptable Loss” by Anne Perry and “Flash and Bones” by Kathy Reichs.

Leta will be presenting story time programs for children Ages 3-5.  The programs will be held at 10:30 on Wednesday mornings beginning Oct. 5 with a theme of “Bugs”.  October is also a time to honor Firemen, so on the 12th that will be the theme.  Oct. 19th will be Teddy Bears and October 26th will be Halloween.

Please indicate interest by signing the children up at the library.  This will help us prepare enough time and materials for the children who come.  Thanks.

The library has a good collection of juvenile audio books.  Audiobooks might provide a way to have a quiet time at home or in the car.  A few of the titles are “A Christmas Dream” by Louisa May Alcott;  “Adventure According to Humphrey” by Betty Birney;  “Blubber” by Judy Blume;  3 of “Allie Finkle’s Rules for Girls” by Meg Cabot; “Woods Runner” by Gary Paulson;  and “Down the Yukon” by Will Hobbs.  There are others by good children’s authors — Andrew Clements, Ann Martin, and Sharon Creech.

Next week, we will be starting fresh with our new library clerk, Leta Liesch.  She will be busy for a while getting acquainted with the library and the computers.  Stop in a say hi to her.  The library is looking forward to having Leta in the children’s section and planning reading programs for the community.


The Friends of the Kimball Public Library are making their plans for Farmer’s Day on September 24.  There will be the annual big book sale beginning at approximately 11:00 right after the parade.  And on display in the Cultural Room will be wood carving crafters.  There is still room for more crafters, so if you are a wood crafter and want to join in displaying your work, please sign up at the library.

Library Board receives Dringman donation

The Kimball Public Library Board gratefully accepted a check from the Lillian Dringman estate a couple of weeks ago.  Carolyn Berg, Kenneth Mars, and Jan Sears met with Darrell Huenergardt at the City Council meeting on August 17th to receive the monies.  Thanks Darrell for all your hard work.
