Introducing Zinio E-Magazine Collection

KFL is pleased to offer Zinio to our patrons, which allows multi-user access to popular publications. Through our website and with a valid library card, KFL patrons have unlimited multi-user access to 50 complete digital magazines and can be viewed on most Internet-enabled devices.

Zinio digitally recreates a magazine page for page, including key word article search and interactive elements such as audio and video. Magazines include Good Housekeeping, Men's Health, Vogue, Newsweek, National Geographic, and the New Yorker. View the full list. Library Director Jill LeMay mentions that "we are excited to offer this new service to our patrons--they are going to love this!"

Because Zinio is a "shared" collection, please check the instructions for creating new accounts. (There are some non-intuitive steps!) To begin click here to create an account or to log in. For more information and instructions, please click here

As always, you may call the library at 207-985-2173, or email us for help. 

Notary Services Now at KFL

The Library is now offering notary services! The service will be available most weekdays, but we recommend calling in advance to ensure that a notary is available. Please remember to bring a valid photo ID and, of course, the document to be notarized. Most documents must be signed in the presence of the notary to be valid so it's best to not sign in advance. There will be a small $2 fee per document. 

For more information, email us or give us a call at 985-2173.
