February Winter Reading Programs were a huge hit! We held raffles, gave out daily prizes and more. If you missed it, don’t worry. We have a Summer Reading Program as well!
We are so proud of our new TinkerCrateClub. High School mentors Ryan Boudreau and Matthew and Jacquelyn LoVoi led the group through a STEAM activity resulting in a battery-operated art spinner. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
KML Teens is working with Dan Spada (Suffield Middle) and Kristin Johnson (High School) to share our book collections with them on a special display in those school libraries. When we get it all set, students there can check out our books through the school system and return them there as well! Just another way the town works together to provide the best services we can!
There is little time to catch our breath and work on spring programs. So far, things are shaping up with the following items for you to put on your schedule. Sign up for programs at suffield-library.org or call 668-3896. To be part of the Teen Program Mailing List, send an email to email@example.com. Don’t forget to thank a Friends of Kent Memorial Library board member for supporting all these wonderful programs with the town book sale each Fall!
