Local Author Entertains

Mike Chase, Suffield native and author of the book How to Become a Federal Criminal: an Illustrated Handbook for the Aspiring Offender, spoke to an appreciative audience at Kent Memorial Library on Thursday, November 7. The talk was sponsored by Suffield Public Library Foundation as part of their yearly speaker’s event.

Work of Longmeadow Artist Featured at KML

A bright collection of original watercolor paintings is featured in December at the William Pinney Gallery of the Kent Memorial Library in Suffield. Featured is the work of Phyllis Taylor of Longmeadow, an award-winning artist, whose work is found in public and private collections throughout New England.

The Gift

The holidays are upon us and with it the promise of gifts. Lewis Hyde in his book The Gift, first published in 1983, and never out of print, offers a thoughtful exploration on gifts.

Library Update

The library punch list grows shorter. That list of not-quite-finished items that typifies all significant building projects has happily lost some of its items; work continues on others.
