Your support makes a difference
It’s no secret.  You and many others know that Kennebunk Free Library is an outstanding library that offers great programs and services by a friendly and qualified staff.  We thank you for appreciating what we offer, what we do, and who we are.  However, we cannot make these significant contributions to our community without your support.  Today, we ask you to support our efforts with a tax-deductible gift to Kennebunk Free Library’s 2017 Annual Appeal.  We need your financial help to continue to provide the great services, programs, and access to information that you have come to expect and appreciate. 

Kennebunk Free Library is a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit organization funded by both public and private contributions. This year the Library must raise nearly $200,000 to supplement funding from municipal appropriations from the towns of Kennebunk and Arundel.  Your generous contribution is an essential part of our annual budget and makes you a key partner in our success.   With your help, we can reach our 2017 Annual Appeal goal of raising $66,000 by June 30, 2017
If you have already answered our appeal, thank you!  If not, I hope we can count on your support.  Please make a tax-deductible gift online at, by mail or next time you are in the library.  Thanks in advance for your continued support.



The Maine InfoNet Download Library has moved to a brand new e-book and e-Audiobook platform called cloudLibrary. This has replaced the Overdrive platform.

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.

Help raise funds for KFL, and spread the word by telling your family, friends, and co-workers.

CLYNKPick up your free CLYNK bags at our circulation desks and fill them up with your redeemable bottles and cans.
  Drop off the bags at the nearest CLYNK counters in the nearby Hannaford Supermarket locations. No need to sort or count. CLYNK  bags display a barcode for KFL, so the money goes directly to the Library’s account.
