KFL's Art Fundraiser

Over 80 works of art are now on display in Speers Gallery at KFL.  Original works, signed numbered prints, photographs, needlework, and pottery create a  collection as diverse and creative as our community itself!  These works have been generously donated by our patrons for the Silent Art Auction fundraiser that runs through March 1st at 4 PM

Small clipboards and pens are available for visitors to jot down art item numbers that pique their interest.  The Auction Bid Notebook with additional information about each item including minimum and current bids is available in Speers Gallery. Every item can be "purchased now" by doubling either the minimum bid or last bid, whichever is highest.  Be sure to get your free bidder number at the Adult desk.

Art Auction winners will be notified on Monday, March 2nd. Photos of the items are available to view on the Library’s HERE.

For more information, please call the library at 207-985-2173.



Library Mini-Golf Weekend Returns!

Want to get out of the house and have some old-fashioned fun? Then come to  KFL on  Sat. night, Feb. 28 and Sun. afternoon, March 1  to play mini-golf. An 18-hole golf course will be set up throughout the library along with twists and turns and obstacles to make playing more exciting. Sat., Feb. 28 from 6 PM to 10 PM is for the "over 21” crowd. A $20 ticket will provide you with a home-made bowl of soup, bread and a tasty dessert with the opportunity to purchase beer and wine to enjoy before or after your round of golf.

Sun., March 1 from 11 AM to 4 PM is "family friendly”! Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for children—those under 2 years old are admitted for free. If you participated in golf the previous night, adults will pay half (keep your ticket stub for proof!). Raffles, snacks and beverages will be available for purchase.

This is the Library’s third year offering Library Mini-Golf as a fun fundraiser. For those folks who like to golf as a group, call ahead to book your foursome. To set up for the event, the Library will close early at 3 PM on Saturday, February 28.

For more information, please call the library at 207-985-2173
