The Cancer Center of York County will present two free programs at the Library. On September 29, 2014 from 6 PM - 7:30 PM,  "Social Security and Disability Insurance as it pertains to a Cancer Diagnosis.”  We regret that this program has been CANCELLED.

On October 1, 2014 from 1 PM - 2 PM, Dr. Christopher Toth, DPM will present "Foot Neuropathy and What You Can Do.” Dr. Toth is affiliated with Southern Maine Health Care Physicians, specializing in Podiatric Medicine and Surgery. Foot neuropathy is damage of the nerves in toes. When the nerves are damaged, they don't function properly. Dr. Toth will explain what foot neuropathy is and treatment options.

Both programs are free and open to the public. The Cancer Care Center of York County collaborates with Southern Maine Health Care, Maine Medical Center, New England Cancer Specialists & Spectrum Medical Group.

Genealogy Group

The Kennebunk Library Genealogy Group began meeting four years ago. The group usually meets at the library the first Saturday of every month at 10 AM except for May when the meeting is held the second Saturday. No meetings are held in Dec, July and August. Everyone is welcome and no reservations are needed. Click here for a full schedule of speakers and programs.

The next meeting will be held on Sat. Oct. 4th  from  10 AM until Noon. It will feature a panel discussion which will help you find more information,  "Genealogy Blogs and Podcasts." Podcasts and blogs pertaining to genealogy are resources not to be overlooked in one’s research or education. Podcasts provide options for listening to genealogy lectures, interviews, discussions and tutorials when and where you want. Blogs provide commentary or up to date news on a particular subject or event while others function as more personal online diaries. 

The program will feature four local genealogists who will discuss how to access them and share their favorite ones. There is no charge for this program, and no reservations are needed.

No RSVP required for these free programs, just come, share and learn!

Writers' Group

KFL will host monthly writers' group meetings for novice and experienced writers alike. Facilitated by David Morse, who spearheaded the Boothbay Harbor writers group for 15 years, the group's goal is to encourage the enjoyment of writing by providing positive feedback and constructive criticism to the writers of the group.

The group will meet year round, informally in July and August, on the second Friday of each month from 10 AM to Noon in Hank's Room at KFL.
