Summer Showdown: Teen Lock-In 2017

Calling all teens! If you love reading and pizza and sneaking around in the library after dark, have we got the event for you! This year’s Summer Showdown Lock-In is taking place at four of our Library locations. You heard me right, FOUR locations. Whether you find yourself at Sylvan Way, Port Orchard, Poulsbo or Bainbridge Island, you can attend our second annual connected summer lock-in.

Mother Love

Sherman Alexie is one of my favorite authors--one of those authors you associate with a pivotal time in your life. My first introduction to him was many years ago when I was living far away from the Pacific Northwest and feeling completely lost. A dear friend wrote me a letter and included a photocopy of a story she had just read in The New Yorker. The story was called "Indian Country" and it was the best thing I had read in a long time.

Create a User Name

Having a username makes it easy to access your Library account from home! It allows you to type in a username you choose instead of the number on your library card for many online services. You can set up a unique username right from KRL.org.  

Go to KRL.org and click on My Account (You'll find it in the upper right corner; if you are on a smart phone you'll find it at the bottom of the site menu.)

Looking for Grant Writers in Kitsap? Me Too!

I help all kinds of nonprofits all over the county with every aspect of the nonprofit life cycle, from conception and birth to sustainability, management and leadership, boards and a treasure trove of research resources, through the library’s role as a Funding Information Network Partner of the Foundation Center of New York.

The thing I do most of all is help nonprofits find funding and all that goes with it – the proposal writing and budgeting skills, collaboration models, trends and what to do after the grant.
