Many heartfelt thanks...

The Friends of Kent Library would like to extend a huge thank-you to all of the Friends and volunteers who helped with our most successful Giant Book Sale to date! It took a lot of effort by all, but in the end it was wholly appreciated by both those who attended as well as the Library, who will benefit from the funds raised.

Be sure to log onto the Friends website often to be the first to know about upcoming events and areas to assist.

Thank you again!
