Welcome to Teen Services
The Kennebunk Free Library serves the diverse needs of the teen community and provides a welcoming environment for teens to experience the library.
In September 2015, the Kennebunk Free Library welcomed Melissa West as the new Teen Librarian. She is settling into her new home here at the Kennebunk Free Library, and she plans to make changes to the teen collections and the teen programming at the Library.
Updating the website content is one of her priorities, so please bear with her while she makes these changes.
In the meantime, check the website often, and come visit Melisa at the Library.
