Perfect For A Relaxing Day : Kent County Public Library

It might sound like a surprising suggestion from us, your friendly and helpful innkeepers: but have you been to your local library lately?  We love ours, and it’s actually one of our favorite places for an outing…

Besides being a cozy place to sit and read – be it books, magazines or the (very!) local newspaper – our library is less than 2 miles from the inn, and often has free programs that can be of interest to visitors as well as  locals.   They’ve completed some renovations recently, updating the circulation desk and  adding new furniture. There’s a nice outdoor area with tables and umbrellas (for the warmer months!). There is a free film in the community room every Friday afternoon.   Free chess club on Tuesdays.  Free needle-crafting nights.  Art openings.  Book club discussions.  Crafting for adults.   Free, free, free.

Sometimes in winter, here on the Eastern Shore, we have to get a little more creative in our search for things to do, so it’s quite nice to have this resource just up the street.  We’ve had several guests over the years who have come to the Brampton Inn on a self-imposed writing retreat.  It’s a great place for peace and quiet and uninterrupted time to oneself, and the library is there for a change of scenery for anyone here to work.

Of course, whether work or play brings you to Chestertown,  we’ll be sure to find something fun for you to do.  You just never know where we might send you!
