Friends of Kent Library

     Friends of the Kent Library is a volunteer group organized to benefit our library by raising extra funds.  In the old facility, the Friends organized the Book Barn on the library lawn. Now, the Friends have their own book sale room in the new library facility.
     One meeting is held annually for members, and four meetings annually for board members, to which all members are invited.
     The Friends would be delighted to welcome you as a member.  Your membership will benefit the community.  Brochures are available at the desk.

Dues for individual membership - $10 per year
