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.

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.

“Nothing to Fear”

When I tell people that I grew up in the Bahamas, I’m often asked “What are you doing up here?” Naturally, this conjures images of sunny beaches and blue waters.

Let’s Get Acquainted

Hello old friends and welcome to my new acquaintances! Some of you may remember me from three or more decades ago when I was employed at the Kent Memorial Library.

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.
