Kensington Library 

Kari at KCS has been busy baking again! Last week she made some tasty bacon, cheddar, chive rolls made off the base recipe from “A Good Day to Pie”. This is our •Read It & Eat• book club selection for the month of November. Find it on Hoopla or stop into the library and see if we have any copies available. *Spoiler Alert!- In this book there’s a baking competition and we hope to have everyone bake a little something to share and sample at our next book club discussion on Saturday, December 2, at 1:00pm.
