KFL Celebrates National Library Week
April 14 through April 19

What better way to spend National Library Week than by enjoying your local library and all of the books, magazines, DVDs and programs that it has to offer? KFL offers a trio of programs to celebrate this special week.

As always, we will feature our famous "Book Bundle" drawing during that week. Enter chances to win books in the Youth, Adult and Children's departments each time you visit KFL. Winners will be announced at the end of the day on Sat., April 19th.

shopping cartAdditionally, the Library has organized a "Food for Fines" drive during this week. Bring in one (or more) items for our local food bank, and half of your fines will be erased when you pay the other half. This is a great way to help your community AND reduce your fines!

Finally, KFL will celebrate "Poem in Your Pocket Day” for the entire week. Stop by to pick up a poem, put it in your pocket to read and share all week. Throughout history, poems have been stowed in pockets in a variety of ways, from the commonplace books of the Renaissance to the pocket-sized publications for Army soldiers in World War II. Poem in Your Pocket day began in 1996 and has continued to be celebrated in schools, libraries and book sellers. Should your appetite need more poems, you'll find plenty at the library and at poetry.org.

For more information, call the library at (207) 985-2173 or email us.

KFL Thanks The Bank of Maine

KFL is thankful for the ongoing financial support we receive from The Bank of Maine. Their annual contribution allows the library to continue its mission to serve the diverse cultural, informational, educational, and recreational needs of the community.

Jill LeMay, Director and Janet Cate, Assistant Director recently presented a map of the Library's Edition Road Race, created by Steve Hrehovcik, to The Bank of Maine's Senior Vice President, Head of Marketing and eRetail, Renée Smyth in appreciation of their support.

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.
