Two great ways to support KFL!
David's KPT at the Boathouse Waterfront Hotel is pleased to announce that Kennebunk Free Library will be the recipient of their March 29th "Worthy Wednesday." This is a delicious opportunity for diners to enjoy dinner at David's KPT while helping benefit the Library.  David's KPT will generously donate 10% of the evening's revenues.  It'll be a terrific time with great food and friends to help out a very worthy cause. We look forward to seeing you.
 


"Dining in" instead? During your visit to the Hannaford store located at 65 Portland Road, be sure to purchase the blue Hannaford Helps Bag. Head straight for the reusable bag rack and grab a few of the bags with the good karma message! 
Now through the end of the month, Hannaford will donate $1 for each bag purchased to Kennebunk Free Library!

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.
