In November, the Library was decorated for Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, and as we were setting up the finishing touches, the staff discussed what it must be like to celebrate this time of year in different areas of the world.

We’re Here For You

I hope that by the time you read this article, you will have heard that the Library has cracked open its doors a bit more. We have made deliberate steps forward in expanding our services since March’s lockdown.

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.
