Kensington Library News

The Scholastic Book Fair was here and many, happy children went home with new books! Each Fall, we hold the Scholastic Book Fair in November with a special Family Event during the Veterans’ Day Celebration in Kensington. Many families stopped to shop before and after the parade. For this Family Event, we gave away a FREE book with each purchase of $20 and over. The Thunder Ridge Elementary classrooms also received many new books for all the kids to read. We appreciate all the families who purchased from the Teacher’s Wish Lists to donate to the classrooms.
