What a great month we had in January! Focused on Self-Care, we held a handmade bath fizzie workshop, teen skincare program, a study with a puppy program in conjunction with Youth Services and together sponsored a Good Luck/De–-Stress Table at the high school to give the students a boost of confidence as midterms began. Thanks to the Friends of Kent Memorial Library for their support! Now, it’s time to move on to February!
2019 Winter Reading
Program for Teens:
Starts February 2
Winter is here – and so is Winter Reading! Read a book, a magazine, listen to a podcast (you don’t even need to prove it, we will take your word for it!) and stop in to earn a free raffle ticket each week for a Grand Prize, and spin the wheel for fun giveaways! Sponsored by the Friends of Kent Memorial Library.
Bring Your Bestie
to the Library Month!
Playing off the February 2 Statewide Take Your Child to the Library Day campaign, KML will reward teens who bring in a sibling, friend, parent, grandparent, a neighbor (you get the idea). Come on in to browse, check out a book and you each get to choose a gift bag with treats and maybe even a gift card inside! Just tell the checkout desk you’ve brought a friend! (And if you read a book you can spin the wheel of fortune and win raffle tickets for the Winter Reading Program!) Sponsored by the Friends of Kent Memorial Library
