Taking a morning walk with your children before homeschooling today? Look for drawings of flowers on March 24th in your neighbors windows, greeting you from a safe distance as you walk our neighborhood streets!
Although we wish you could listen live, the current quarantine means you will need to log onto Butter’s Facebook page to watch the solo performance. Ben is excited to share his music with you and the cafe is still open today and can welcome four people into the shop at one time for counter service.
This is the first in a series of short concerts performed by Kingfield musicians who have performed in our annual celebration called Kingfield PorchFest, which we anticipate happening this year on June 18th. We hope you will enjoy these concerts and look forward to the day when we can gather in community again to enjoy the talents and sounds of our community. Concerts will be archived for your viewing pleasure at www.kingfield.org.
Please note: Butter Bakery Cafe has also set up a sharing library in the front vestibule of their shop. If you have extra items that neighbors may need like a roll of paper towels, a can of beans, a bottle of hand sanitizer please feel free to bring it today as you walk the neighborhood and stop into the cafe for a cookie to go.
Although Hennepin County has closed all public-facing services at all 41 libraries, human service centers, and licensing service centers through April 6th, it is still easy to access digital and audio materials from the Library over the next few weeks.
- Sign up any time with a library card online or have yours available to log in your number
- Borrow eBooks and downloadable audiobooks, stream music or try the Libby app
- View the digital library collections here
- Due dates for all physical materials have been extended. No items will be due before April 28.
- At this time, outdoor book drops remain open if you’d like to return materials.
- No new fines will accrue during the closure, because due dates for all physical materials have been extended.
- Previously assessed fines will still be on your account, but please talk to us about your fines – we’ll be ready to help.

Come join us and sew reusable shopping bags which are given away at local grocery stores and markets! The format is casual, so drop in for as much time as you have free. Bring your own machine if you are a sewer, or just show up and help iron, cut, and pin. All levels of participation are welcomed! Stay in touch with the group via Facebook.
Do you need a reusable shopping bag? Come to an event and we will help you make one!
