Out of an abundance of caution, Kent District Library will close all in-branch hours effective Monday, November 16 but will continue curbside service so library services are uninterrupted, maintaining the regular hours of operation for each branch. The COVID-19 related closure of several branches over the past couple weeks has made it very clear that these steps are necessary. KDL Managers and Leadership Team will continue to work through the details and consideration for how and when to resume in-branch hours. Thankfully, we introduced excellent curbside service this summer, which allows patrons to continue to borrow library materials and utilize printing services, and we offer an incredible array of online resources and programming. These services have proven to be very popular with patrons, giving them the safest options for enjoying what the library has to offer.
