Fall activities at the library | Check it Out

At the library, we can show you how to find information for reports, study a foreign language, review math, and direct a question to a library tutor.  After a summer full of fun family programs, Kitsap Regional Library is getting ready for school and Fall at the Mall programs. Pick up a brochure the next time you visit us for a complete listing.
