About Patti Labelle
Beautiful, simply does not describe the incomparable force known to the world as Patti LaBelle. As time continues to evolve, the soulful songbird’s name has become synonymous with grace, style, elegance and class. Belting out classic rhythm and blues renditions, pop standards and spiritual sonnets have created the unique platform of versatility that she is known and revered for.

So much to look forward to!

We were so excited to see this clip on Sunday Morning that highlights the new direction for libraries.

It was like it was written for the new Kennett Library & Resource Center. There will be no shushing there!
