Big doings here at the library.

We’re rolling out a brand new circulation system tomorrow!  Due to the changeover, we will be opening at 2:00 PM rather than our regular 12:30 PM. 

We’re very sorry for the inconvenience, but we think you’ll think it’s worth it — once the new system is up and running, you’ll be able to renew your books online, place holds and check your account from home.


Tournament of Books Announces Winner

What March Madness is to basketball, Tournament of Books is to readers–or at least some.  The announcement of the winner, described by one judge as “a squeaker” (no spoiler here, but KFL does own the book) sparked my interest in reading this well-known author, and more specifically, this book.  Learn more about the 16 contenders, judges and brackets, and glean new titles for your personal reading list.
