moving! A long-anticipated move for the Kentville Library is now in the works. The last open day of the Kentville Library in the current location, 95 Cornwallis Street, was Saturday, August 6th.
The library will be closed August 7th through to the 14th. In order to continue to serve the Kentville area, the Annapolis Valley Regional Library will operate a smaller, temporary library while renovations on the new space in the former United Church at 440 Main Street are being completed. Anticipated re-opening of the “Kentville Lite” Library in the lower level of 440 Main Street will be Monday, August 15th. There will be no overdue fines charged on items due during the closure period. The bookdrop will remain open at the current location this week. Items can be returned to the bookdrop or to any other AVRL location.
The Mad Science: Fire & Ice program, scheduled for Tuesday, August 9, will be relocated to the Upper Recreation Centre at 354 Main Street, next to Town Hall. Participants in the Summer Reading Club will be able to pick up Fast Passes and other prizes on Tuesday, August 9, at the Recreation Centre from 11:30 AM until 4 PM, or at any AVRL location, including the Bookmobile.
