Effective Monday, March 16, 2020, The Kent Memorial Library will be closed to the public until further notice. Given developments over the weekend, and recommendations from the CDC and North Central District Health Department, we will not be providing our Express Pick Up service at this time.
It is no surprise to anyone in Suffield to read that our library has suffered extraordinary tumult in the last few years, with much repair work and many code requirements needing to be met and less than stellar temporary accommodations during the interim. We all rejoiced when it reopened last summer, its beautiful new Mary Anne Zak entrance offering much-needed handicapped access.
Just a few months ago I was writing to introduce myself as the Interim Library Director for the Kent Memorial Library. And now that a new director has been hired, I am saying goodbye to the library and Suffield once again.
