We are now accepting orders from individuals and businesses; the wreaths will be delivered to the library for pick up on Sat., Nov. 21st. For an additional fee, wreaths can be shipped.
These are the same wreaths, sprays and centerpieces that Kennebunk High School has sold in the past. If you have purchased them from the school, then you already know of their high quality. Wreaths of Maine uses Balsam fir to make double sided wreaths-because it is plentiful and it smells so good! There are nine wreaths to choose from. Wreaths measure two feet across which is a perfect size for the front door. Each one is hand made by a skilled wreath-maker. The wreaths are then decorated just as are depicted. The wreaths are delivered in decorative boxes using the fastest delivery possible, so wreaths arrive fresh. They come with a personalized gift card and a hanger is attached. Prices vary and range between $28 and $38.To order wreaths to pick up at the KFL, use this order form. To place your order for wreath delivery, use this shipping form .

Lawrence Dwight Named KFL’s First Trustee Emeritus
"Larry” Dwight has been named Kennebunk Free Library’s first Trustee Emeritus,
endorsed unanimously by the KFL’s Board of Trustees.
In November 2014, the KFL Board of Trustees agreed to create the role of Trustee Emeritus for former KFL Trustees in recognition of their "distinguished service", defined as active participation and engagement when serving as a full member of the Board; consistent philanthropic support; and demonstrated interest in the KFL.
Larry has satisfied this definition many times over. He is a former Board of Trustees president and board member of many years. As the great-grandson of George Parsons, who donated the land for the present library, hired the architect and oversaw the building process, Larry has been a mainstay at the KFL for decades, and continues to support the KFL.
