VISITE CON LA BIBLIOTECA!
On Sunday, September 12, 2010, the Kent Distict Library will be reaching out to our Hispanic community at the Alpine Township Sports Complex. Katie the Elephant, Mascott of the District Library. El Pollo Loco, a crazed chicken of no known origins (other than an egg), and Purdy the Clown will all be on hand in an effort to introduce the migrant youth to the KDL.
