During the months of July and August, the Friends of the Kent Memorial Library are sponsoring a contest at the library. Each time a museum pass is checked out, the patron’s name is entered to win a $25 gift certificate from Barnes and Noble. One gift certificate will be awarded each month. Each month the contest starts anew.
Another exciting development at the library is the purchase of a new software by the Kent Memorial Library which will enable Suffield patrons to reserve all of the museum passes and print most of them from home. The Kent Memorial Library makes it easy for Suffield residents. The museum passes give free or discounted admission. For more detailed information, please call the library 860-668-3896 or access the website suffield-library.org.
