Thursday' June 9' 2011 r Tn'-County News *Kimball, MN ................ jr::  ,,, . , %% Summer reading programs begin June 13 Great River Regional Library which program they would like to completed with five hours of read- (GRRL) will begin its annual Summer Reading Program (SRP) for children and teens ages 0-18 on Monday, June 13, continu- ing through Aug. 13. Registration takes place at all 32 GRRL loca- tions beginning June 13. The goal of the SRP is to encour- age reading and to keep young readers reading during the sum- mer months. Various studies have shown that: Reading over the summer prevents summer loss of reading skills. Summer loss of reading skills is cumulative. Children do not catch up in the fall because the other children are moving ahead with their skills. By the end of sixth-grade, children who lose reading skills over the summer can be two years behind their classmates. Children who enroll in library summer reading programs main- tain or improve their reading skills more than those who do not. Self-selection of reading materials is an important factor in motivating struggling readers and is a key component for most sum- mer library programs. Each GRRL location will offer summer programs aimed at three different age groups, 0 to 3, 3 to 12, and grades 6 to 12. Three-year-olds and 11 to 14-year-olds may choose be in. Children under 3 must do the Read-to-Me program. Partici- pants may be-only in one SRP. Note: Visiting and vacation- ing children who do not live in the GRRL area are welcome to par- ticipate in the SRP. All books and reading materials count for the program, even materials that do not belong to the library. The pro- grams are: "One World, Many Stories - Read to Me" for children from 0-3 The 0-3 program for babies and toddlers prepares children for con- tinued success through the devel- opment of early language skills. It's a program designed to help kids develop the first and essential building blocks to literacy such as letter knowledge and vocab- ulary. Parents receive a Read-to- Me reading record to complete for their children. The completed and signed reading record can be returned to the library for a prize drawing for parents who engage their children in early literacy skills. nOne World, Many Stories" for children ages 3 - Grade 6 The age 3 through sixth-grade program provides children with an incentive to continue reading throughout the summer. Partici- pants receive reading record slips on which they record every hour they read. When a slip has been ing, it may be turned in and the child can begin another. Children are encouraged to complete and turn in as many reading records as they want. Each completed read- ing record may be turned in for a chance to win local incentive drawings and regional grand prize drawings. "You Are Here" for teens in grades 6-12 The teen program asks teens to track their reading in 30-min- ute segments which they mark on coupon sheets they then enter for local and regional incentive drawings. Reading books, maga- zines, graphic novels and newspa- pers counts for this program. Each coupon sheet covers four hours of reading. Participants may turn in multiple completed sheets. Programming Many library events are hap- pening at all GRRL locations to celebrate the program all summer long! Exciting programs are being funded with money from Min- nesota's Arts and Cultural Heri- tage Funds, such as performances by GREAT Theatre, creative craft programs from ArtStart, ventrilo- quism classes, and mosaics work- shops. Check out the Events page at for dates and times and to pre-register for some events, or speak with staff at your local library.

Pillow cleaning coming to Kimball Legion Carlson's Pillow Cleaning Service Friday, June 17, 7 a.m. to noon A good goose feather pillow, considered the Cadillac of pillows, given proper care, should last any- where between 60 and 100 years, and still be in good usable condi- tion. Here's why most of them don't: Every time a pillow is washed or steam-cleaned, those feathers have lost bnetween 10 and 15 years of their usefulness. Why? A feather depends on the oil in it for its life and soft- ness. Washing or steam-cleaning removes oil from them, shortening their useable life. Now, if you can get the pillow cleaned and covered in a new tick (material) reasonablylgriced, doing so without removing any oil from the feathers, it is-possible to have a pillow that would last you many, many years. This is where Carlson's Pillow Cleaning Service comes in. They have a machine that can do just that, and do it very reasonably. The machine is mounted in a mobile unit and the work is completed on- site while you wait, same-day ser- vice. This machine system will clean, disinfect, and deodorize the feath- ers without removing any of their oil. Your feathers are not mixed with any other customer's feathers, you receive all of your own feathers back, no feathers lost. How the machine works: The feathers are emptied into the machine where they are rambled and fluffed by rotating brushes. The tumbling action has two additional purposes: to remove the chaff and dust to a grate in the bot- tom of the drum and to subject all feathers to the germ-killing ultra- violet rays produced by powerful germicidal bulbs set into the top ot the drum. After a period of four minutes, the feathers are automatically vacuumed from the drum into a deodorizing chamber, processing through into the new feather and down-proof fabric ticking. The result is a cleaner-than-new pillow, in five minutes. -- Care Amenities to meet your needs: 3 meals per day.& snacks Scheduled exercise and activities Church activities, including mass 3 times/mo.
