Come out to a Friends of the Library meeting! All are welcome!

Who are the Friends of the Library?
We are volunteers who treasure our library and see the amazing impact it has in our community.

We hope you will become a member of our friends group if you aren't already- it only takes five minutes and five dollars to join!

You can help by simply paying the yearly membership fee or you can choose to do more. Friends' support can be attending meetings (we meet six times per year), helping to spread the word about events, fund raise to help the library offer future events & programs, lend a hand during the events, serve in an elected role and keep our Friends group going! Volunteer your personal talents to our group. You can be as much or as little involved as you want.

Most of us will think of honey bees when pollinators are mentioned. Honey bees are not native to North America. There is a wide range of insects, birds and other animals that are critical pollinators. There are things that each of us can do to attract these critters. It can also be a fun project for kids.

Chapter Chat is a book club for fifth and sixth graders that meets at the Kimberly Library on the second Tuesday of every month during the school year. Join anytime! We will have discussions and other fun activities related to each month's book. Pick up your copy of the month's selection at the Kimberly Library front desk.

March's book is The Girl Who Saved Christmas by Matt Haig, the sequel to our January read, A Boy Called Christmas. The first book was so well loved, they begged to read the second! Amelia Wishart was the first child ever to receive a Christmas present. It was her Christmas spirit that gave Santa the extra boost of magic he needed to make his first trip around the world. But Amelia's hope begins to drain away. Santa needs her help, and Amelia must learn to believe again.
