The Friends of the Kingsessing Library with heavy hearts announce the imminent transfer of our wonderful children's librarian, Ms. Kim Robinson, who has also been our acting head librarian for several months. We are very concerned about the future of the Kingsessing Branch Library due to continual understaffing, Saturday closures and a recent mid-week closure. Look for the announcement of a community meeting.
