Kensington Library

The Community Library Board would like to extend an invitation for you to join us for a Halloween Trunk-or-Treat again this year. Area and local businesses, organizations, and individuals are welcome to decorate a trunk and park around our community/school library with treats for the children. This event will be held on Halloween, Tuesday October 31, from 5:30-7:00pm. We hope you will join us!

Also, in collaboration with the Kensington Community Store we are trying something new! The “Read It and Eat” book club combines 2 of our favorite things: reading and eating! Each month we will feature a new title. The KCS will make a recipe from that book and have individual servings available for sale. Then, on the last Monday of the month we will get together for a book discussion at the library. Stay tuned for more information!
