This time last year we had a lot of things on our mind. We were wondering where we would find toilet paper, how to keep our glasses from fogging up while wearing face masks, and asking “did I just lose my sense of taste or is this food just bland?”
For the month of July, our “Books & Beyond” series continues with New York Times’ bestselling author Gabrielle Glaser. She will be joining us via Zoom on Thursday, July 15 at 7 p.m. to talk about her new book, American Baby: A Mother, A Child and the Shadow History of Adoption.
Summer reading is in full-swing, or should we say constant wag, as Tails & Tales features reading challenges, raffle tickets, weekly prizes and lots of programs to keep kids, teens and adults learning, growing and playing.
A bright collection of original watercolor paintings is featured in July at the William Pinney Gallery of the Kent Memorial Library in Suffield. Featured is the work of Art Scholz of Tolland, an award-winning artist, whose work is found in several galleries and private collections.
The Friends’ June 7 meeting will include a discussion regarding the proposed change of the Friends annual meeting from April to October. Because this is a change in by-laws, it must be a vote of the Friends membership.
Kent Memorial Library’s “Books & Beyond” series continues on June 10 with New York Times bestselling author Ashley Audrain, who will be discussing her debut novel The Push. Ashley is a native of Canada and will be joining us from Toronto, where she currently resides with her family.
On Saturday, May 1, the Friends of Kent Memorial held their first book collection in over a year due to the pandemic. It was obvious that many Suffield residents had been waiting patiently for us to come “on line” and begin collecting again, because many, many people drove to the library and lined up to unload boxes and bags and armfuls of books during our two-hour collection time.
Looking for a way to keep the kids busy during the summer? Hoping to catch up on social interaction for your teens and yourself? Need help with computers, job services or even social services? Then Kent Memorial Library is the place for you.
