Library Renewing Memberships

KENT—The Kent Memorial Library is seeking new members and renewals of membership. A new option allows residents to sign up or renew online using a credit card or a PayPal account. Membership runs from October to October.

The library receives one-third of its income from the town but must raise the rest of its operating budget. The funds support programs for children, tweens and teens such as Rhythm & Rhyme story hours for babies, Safe Sitter babysitting training and scavenger hunts for older children, and the annual Kent Carnival. 

For adults, the library hosts speakers on current topics such as gardening, local wildlife and health issues, and local and internationally-known authors talk about their newest works. There is exhibition space for local artists not represented by commercial galleries. And for local businesses, the library continues to expand its resources, with a high-speed photocopier/scanner/fax and workshops on solving business and technology problems.

Printed applications with checks payable to the Kent Library Association can be mailed to this address: Kent Library Association, P.O. Box 127, Kent, CT 06757-0127. It is a Section 501c (3) organization, and donations may be tax deductible.
