Blood and Tears

I recently read Sam Fuller’s account of how the library on 50 North Main Street came to be. The building’s inception was awash in what Sam called “blood and tears.”

Books Moved, Library Opening Scheduled

On April 23, immediately after the Observer’s May issue went to press, First Selectman Melissa Mack announced that the Kent Memorial Library would reopen on Saturday, June 29. There were still a number of tasks to complete, but it looked as if the June 29 date would work, including word from principal donor Michael Zak that he could be present.

“A Universe of Stories . . . to Remember.” That’s our theme for the summer program. We will celebrate our return “home” to Main Street with lots of baskets to give away!

Looking forward to May, we have another Study With a Puppy session May 7 from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Youth Center on Bridge Street. Teens grades 6-12 can come for pizza, study time, a bit of recreation and some pet therapy, thanks to Healers with Halos.
