“We hoped that The Friends of Kennett Library would be able to continue the Home & Garden Tour in June, but Covid-19 made the tour an impossibility,” said Friend’s President Sara Leff. “About halfway through the planning we realized we couldn’t assure everyone’s health and safety and had to make the hard decision to cancel this year’s tour.”

We are raising money for the Library while also bringing recognition and support to local shops and restaurants. The beauty of this raffle is that the gift certificates are being purchased with funds donated by our generous sponsors, bringing actual dollars back into the community. “It didn’t seem right to ask already hard-hit local restaurants and shops to donate gift cards, which is the usual practice for fundraisers,” explained Carol Yetter, a Friends board member. It’s a true win-win, and a fun way to support the Library and our area businesses.

All proceeds from the Friends Shop & Dine Raffle support Adult Literacy and Children’s programs at the Library.

The Adult Literacy Program offers English as a Second Language (ESL), General Equivalency Diploma (GED) and preparation for American Citizenship classes as well as one on one tutoring. Since May, all classes are offered online. Children’s programs including English and Spanish story times are also online.
