Thank you for your interest in supporting the Kent Library Association! We are pleased to offer you an online option to become a new KLA member or renew your membership, using a credit card or a PayPal account. We are a Section 501c(3) organization, and your donation may be tax deductible.
The Kent Memorial Library needs your 2022 membership support to help sustain a vibrant community center and maintain our historic building. Our membership year runs from October 2021 to October 2022. We hope you will renew your support.
We are not a town department and need your membership support!
We are grateful to the taxpayers and Town of Kent for funding a third of our operating budget. But the Library is not a Town department, and every year we work hard to raise the remaining two-thirds of our budget. This year we are facing significant losses due to the cancellation of most of our annual fundraisers, plus added expenses due to facility and programming changes due to COVID-19. None of these expenses fall into our regular budget.
Something for everyone
We have children, tweens and teens covered, with programs such as Rhythm & Rhyme story hours for babies, Safe Sitter babysitting training and scavenger hunts for older children, and our annual Kent Carnival. For adults, the Library hosts speakers on current topics such as gardening, local wildlife and health issues, and local and internationally-known authors talk about their newest works. We also provide exhibition space for local artists who are not represented by commercial galleries. For local businesses, the Library continues to expand its resources, with a high speed photocopier/scanner/fax and workshops on solving business and technology problems.
We couldn’t do it without the hundreds of volunteers who generously give their time, and now we ask for your financial support to provide you with the best possible Library!
Thank you again for your support.
