Kimball Public Library
Kimball Public Library enriches our community by encouraging and supporting lifelong literacy and learning through free and open access to books, cultural activities and technology.
The Kimball Makerspace, Kimball Public Library’s makerspace and gadget lab, introduces the community to resources, technology and programming that provide creative learning, fabrication, and entrepreneurial opportunities. It is a dedicated space with an Epilog Laser Cutter, Dremel 3D design/printing equipment, Cricut Maker, 15×15 Heat Press, a 2-inch button maker, and Lego Robotics. The Kimball Makerspace allows patrons to learn how to use new technology for free. It offers patrons the opportunity to explore new and emerging technology in a gathering space that encourages both critical and creative thinking. The Kimball Makerspace supports entrepreneurship and small business development through utilization of its resources, including tools and equipment too specialized or expensive to own. As a space where adults, families, teens, and children are able to utilize equipment, technology, and programming, the Kimball Makerspace enables new forms of learning, creativity, personal manufacturing and business opportunities. Additionally, the Library’s teen summer reading program supports the makerspace movement by providing programs for teens to learn the equipment.
The library offers an extensive collection of Kimball history records and genealogy information.
Children’s programs are offered throughout the year including Little Readers Preschool Storytime, Club Next after school S.T.E.A.M. program, LEGO club, and a teen book club.
During the summer the library has Summer Reading Programs for all ages, child to adult.
