A sampling of our past special events [all proceeds from events benefit our mission of continual improvement and enrichment of the Keyport Public Library]:

Fourth Annual Scarecrow Contest

2018 marks the fourth anniversary of this popular event during the Halloween/harvest season that brings out the creativity in the entire Keyport community to see who can decorate the winning scarecrow in a number of categories. Competition is steep, but so is the fun! Registration and materials pickup will happen at the library on Saturday 09/22/2018 and Saturday 09/29/2018! The entry fee will be $25. Judging will take place on Saturday, 10/13/2018, with a special guest judge, and music by Al Milewski and Frank Patrouch! Refreshments will be served, and Keyport Kash will be awarded to the top three scarecrows. Sponsored by the Keyport Bayfront Business Collective! Rain date for the judging will be Saturday, 10/20/2018.

And look for our table to stop by and visit us at the Keyport community events!


Don’t have time to volunteer but would like to help? For just $10, you can buy a custom designed Friends of the Library tote! They make great gifts and can be filled with books, gardening gear, etc!
