Friends of the Library

Special thanks to both EMPIRE WINE AND SPIRITS for their continued supply of boxes for the sorting and transport of books and SUNSHINE GARDENS for the loan of large wheel garden carts to help us in the transport of books for the Book Sale.

The Friends of the KPL are most grateful to these two KINGSTON businesses for their support of the Library and hope that you will remember them when making your holiday purchases.
