Did You Know? KPL is fully open to the public. No appointments are needed to browse the shelves or use computers. We do ask that you use hand sanitizer before browsing the shelves and check-in at the front desk before using a computer.

Graduate Recognition KPL would like to once again recognize local high school and college graduates in a window display. If you want to be added to our display, please call us or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please use Grad Display as the subject and include the graduate’s name and school.
Summer Reading Program is coming! June 1—July 31 We will be using ReadSquared again this year to track reading. There will be games, missions, badges and more in ReadSquared. We will have drop-in crafts and science activities each week, as well as weekly virtual storytime programs. Information kits can be picked up starting May 25.
Staff Pick from CJ I recommend Egg Shooters by Laura Childs. It is a good, light read. It is suspenseful without being too dark or violent. It is part of the Cackleberry Club Mystery Series, which is a great series for those that like mysteries.
KPL is sad to announce that our afternoon circulation desk librarian Alex Mills will be leaving us to pursue other ventures. We wish her well and are grateful for the service she has given to KPL.
