Description: Our current library has been operating out of a re-purposed car dealership since 1987. After 29 years of serving the public under less than ideal circumstances, the library is moving to a new home in a decommissioned United Church. The Friends of the Kentville Library group has been formed and is in the process of raising funds for the new location. These funds will be allotted to the Young Adult area of the library. It will be named “Killam Corner”, and these funds will make it a fun, inviting space for the youth of Kentville and area.

“Reading and writing, like everything else, improve with practice. And, of course, if there are no young readers and writers, there will shortly be no older ones. Literacy will be dead, and democracy – which many believe goes hand in hand with it – will be dead as well.” – Margaret Atwood.

Fundraising Goal: $20,000
Amount raised as of August 6, 2016: $500
