KDL Kelloggsville branch hosts a Birthday Bash – everyone’s invited

The branch is marking its fifth birthday with this Birthday Bash on Aug. 2.

Kelloggsville — Have you seen the Kelloggsville Public Library? It’s at the High School – and so is the party! It’s all the makings of a birthday bash: foam party, yard games, take-and-make crafts for adults, goodie bags for children and of course, ice cream.

The KDL Kelloggsville branch is marking its fifth birthday with this Birthday Bash on Aug. 2 starting at 1 p.m. just outside the school. 

Located in Kelloggsville High School, 4787 Division Ave. South, the party is designed to serve the community along with helping create awareness about the branch and its offerings, said KDL Kelloggsville Branch Librarian Cameron Holmes.

“The branch has been here for five years but it’s surprising how many of the community members are not aware that it is here or open to the public because it is located in the school,” Holmes said, adding the branch entrance is tucked in on the north side of the building and not easily visible from the street.

During school hours, the library is open only to high school students, however after school and during the summer, the KDL Kelloggsville branch is open to the public. The branch is full service, providing a range of materials for children to adults, along with the Beyond Books program and other KDL services. During the Birthday Bash, partygoers will have an opportunity to tour the branch. Plus, the KDL Bookmobile will be at the event.

“The event will be outside, so I am hoping that will increase visibility and encourage people to attend,” Holmes said. 

Birthday Bash on Aug. 2 starting at 1 p.m. Regular summer hours for the KDL Kelloggsville branch are 9:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Monday and Wednesday and noon-6:30 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday. During the school year, the branch is open from 3-6:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday.

KDL is a sustaining sponsor of School News Network.
