KENT — The Kent Memorial Library will be taking care of long-deferred and necessary repairs including asbestos remediation and new carpet installation, closing the library on Wednesday, January 15.

The library will be temporarily moved to 19 and 23 Kent Green Blvd. for a few weeks. The estimated time of returning to 32 North Main St. is early February.

New materials, periodicals, a selection of audiobooks and DVD’s, computers and wireless printing will be available at 19 Kent Green Blvd.

Patrons will be able to request materials from other libraries to be delivered to the temporary location. Selections of children’s books, toys, Tuesday baby group, Thursday lunch brunch, a winter story hour and TAB knitting and crochet circle will take place as scheduled.

There are some programs for adults in January that will continue. The KLA will hold its annual meeting at 2 p.m. Saturday, January 18, immediately followed by a Sculptor Talk by Peter Woytuk.

Artist Susan Grisell has signed up for January and February. The library will have an exhibit of her work from January 15 until the move back to 32 North Main St. in addition to her regular exhibit at the library in February.
