January 2022 Volume 3, Issue 4
Director's Corner Happy 2022! It just doesn’t seem possible that we are 22 years into the 21st century! I hope everyone had lots of time to read, reflect and recoup and are now ready to tackle another new year. The library is continuing to get new materials for your reading and watching enjoyment. Stop by and see what all we have to offer you!
KPL will be closed on January 1, 2022 for New Years Day.
Did You Know?
KPL Book Club meets the Second Thursday of each month at 6PM. Meetings last about an hour, and you don’t have to finish reading the book to attend. KPL Book Club is just a casual gathering of people that enjoy reading and discussing books. New attendees are always welcome, even if you want to “just try it out” or just come sporadically for your favorite books. Pick up a 2022 Book Club Book & Meeting Schedule today!
Sunday, January 16 is Appreciate a Dragon Day. Come show appreciation for KPL’s dragon mascot at the circulation desk or check out one of our Dragon themed books during the following week.

I recommend Cat Me If You Can (A Cat in the Stacks Mystery) by Miranda James. What could be better than a mystery to solve, a cat, and a gathering of mystery novel readers?

There will be no Homeschool Meetup in January. Next meetup will be February 16.
KPL will be sending out a program interest survey in a few weeks. It will be available in digital or paper copies. Please have each member of your family fill it out, even if they don’t currently use the library. This survey will help us as we plan for future programming. Expressing interest in a program isn’t a commitment but does give us some guidance on what services our wonderful community needs and wants.
The Reading with Rover therapy dogs will be at the February Homeschool Meetup.
