THE LIBRARY WILL BE CLOSED MONDAY, OCTOBER 13, FOR COLUMBUS DAY.
PLEASE NOTE OUR NEW HOURS: The Children's Department will now be open the same hours as the Adult Department. Also, we now close Friday nights at 5 PM. (The facility will be open occasionally for special Friday evening events--such as FAMILY BINGO NIGHT--but will not offer standard library services.)
JOIN THE FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY: Keyport Public Library is currently looking for members to restart our Friends of the Keyport Public Library group. The Library has made tremendous changes in the last year to benefit our patrons, but we need your help to continue to improve and remain vital. Volunteers will provide community input, conduct fundraising, and more!! Call the Library to join!!
CARDBOARD CHALLENGE: Learn how a little boy and a short video, Caine's Arcade, inspired a global movement for creative play. We participated in this year's event by creating arcade games, robots, doll houses and more out of cardboard boxes and recycled materials. in honor of the Global Day of Play on Saturday, October 11, we'll be displaying our creations at the Keyport Library table from 10 AM to 1 PM at the Country Jamboree (or inside at the Library if it rains). Stop by!!
