Due to lack of volunteers for carrying and sorting, the Friends of Kent Library will not be able to accept any book donations during the month of February. "The volume of used book donations we have received recently has been overwhelming," said Carol Donick, Library director. "Although they are grateful for the books they have received, the Friends of the Library now need a month to catch up and sell some books."
The Friends will be holding a "Book Cellar" sale on Saturday, February 8 from 10 to 2, and on the second Saturdays of the month throughout the year. This is a great time to stock up on enough books to get you through the winter. Most books cost just $1 to $2. The Friends will begin receiving donated books again in March.
Much of the money earned by the Friends through the book sales is donated to the Kent Public Library to pay for museum passes, which library patrons can borrow to visit local museums for free. You can visit many of the great New York City museums, including the newly renovated Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), The Frick Collection, the Guggenheim, the Intrepid, and the New York Historical Society. Closer to home are the Danbury Railway Museum, the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, and the Katonah Museum of Art.
