Friends of the Kensington Library
The Friends of the Kensington Library, a 501c(3) nonprofit organization, has worked to improve library services in Kensington since 1959. Through membership donations and book sale earnings, the FKL provides the library with funds to build its collection, maintain its circulating materials, and improve building facilities. We also provide children`s and cultural programs for the community, and partner with the organization West County Reads (“WCR”) to promote family literacy and raise awareness of the benefits that reading and library services provide the community. For further information, contact the FKL at kensington.FKL@gmail.com.
The Friends of the Kensington Library also have an ongoing book sale at the library with a wide variety of books in excellent physical condition. Many of the best books go directly to this mini-sale instead of waiting for the twice-yearly book sales in May and October.
Friends of the Kensington Library are not currently accepting any donations.
