KFL's 18th Edition Library Race!
On behalf of the Kennebunk Free Library Board of Trustees, thank
you very much for helping make the 18th Edition Race a huge
success! The weather was near-perfect and over four hundred runners plus
visitors enjoyed an evening full of delicious food, great music, a bit of
exercise, and friendly conversation! Over 100 community businesses
generously supported the Road Race with sponsorships, prize donations, raffle
items, and other support for the Race. Dozens of community
members and library supporters volunteered hundreds of hours to make this event
not only our biggest fundraiser of the year but one that provided an
opportunity to enjoy a beautiful summer evening on the library’s lawn! By
all accounts this was a huge success!

Lawrence Dwight Named KFL’s First Trustee Emeritus
"Larry” Dwight has been named Kennebunk Free Library’s first Trustee Emeritus,
endorsed unanimously by the KFL’s Board of Trustees.
In November 2014, the
KFL Board of Trustees agreed to create the role of Trustee Emeritus for former
KFL Trustees in recognition of their "distinguished service", defined as active participation and engagement when serving as a
full member of the Board; consistent philanthropic support; and demonstrated
interest in the KFL.
Larry has satisfied this definition many times
over. He is a former Board of Trustees president and board member of many
years. As the great-grandson of George Parsons, who donated the land for the
present library, hired the architect and oversaw the building process, Larry
has been a mainstay at the KFL for decades, and continues to support the KFL.
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.
