A New Normal

Each month I find us inching towards a new normal. Our Curbside Pick Up Service has been running for a while now, and with some adjustments to our hours, we’re starting to see more patrons participating.

We’re Here For You!

As we have done in preparing to offer our Curbside Service, KML staff is similarly working on developing plans for a phased reopening of the Library in the future. We are in communication with other libraries in our area and across the state gathering best practices and information to more fully inform our decisions.

Youth Programs

Summer Reading June 29 to August 8: It’s almost here! Sign up starts June 29!

General Programs: Prizes, Programs and Prose!

Kent Memorial Library’s Teen Summer Reading Program “Imagine Your Story” is ready to start Monday, June 29. Read, attend programs, participate in challenges (like Bingo or scavenger hunts or surprise crafts!) and earn raffle tickets for ice cream, Amazon, and other great prizes!

Library Offers Curbside Service

Brianna Chester carries a bundle of books back to her young daughter waiting in the car. She had requested the books by phone, and they were set out on the table when she phoned her arrival.

Director’s Corner

Since we closed our physical building in response to COVID-19, staff at the Kent Memorial Library has grappled with working remotely from home, attending webinars and Zoom meetings, expanding networks and becoming part of a broader conversation of what libraries can do during a global pandemic.

Director’s Corner

What an incredible time to step into the role as Library Director! As we are all hunkered down in our homes, I can’t help but reflect on what this last month has been like for the entire staff at the Kent Memorial Library, and what it means for our community.

New Nutmeg Books

The month of May is one of my favorite times of year as a librarian. The new Nutmeg books are released!
