Director of the Montgomery-Floyd Regional Library

Welcome to Montgomery-Floyd Regional Library. Here at your library, we strive to inform, inspire, empower and connect the people we serve. We have all experienced challenges together since winter 2020, and we are committed to being there for you in familiar and innovative ways as the community moves forward from here. Preschool storytimes have resumed at all branches and we hope to see all the youngest patrons as our storytellers amuse and amaze the next generation’s readers.

We hope you visit soon. Every day, we share new books, audiovisual items, electronic resources and other services with you. Library staff can assist you with finding library material, and with using our public computers and Wi-Fi. We will show you how to use our Princh printing service to print from your own device to the library’s printers wirelessly. We will share with you the Libby Magazines collection of 3000+ magazine titles, and demonstrate how to get the apps that let you enjoy Books, eAudio, and those magazines from home, or from anywhere you take your mobile device.

You may see our Mobile Library out and about in Montgomery and Floyd counties. The Mobile Library brings our services out beyond our buildings, and visits scheduled locations every three weeks. At each stop MFRL provides books and other material for check out; Wi-Fi access; printing from patrons’ mobile devices; and assistance with visitor questions. Stop by for a demonstration of how to access eBook and eAudio collections, of for help requesting items that are on the branch shelves.

Every day, the library staff is motivated by you. It is our honor to help you access the stories, tools, and connections that will help us fulfill our vision statement – “People building skills and knowledge that enhance their lives, in a region prepared to prosper.” I hope you can take advantage of the opportunities to learn, grow and relax that reading provides – and enjoy our DVD’s, audiobooks, cd’s and programming as well. Montgomery-Floyd Regional Library is here for you and working to meet your needs.

We welcome your comments, suggestions and ideas. If I can be of assistance to you, please call me at 540-382-6969 ext. 216 or email me at kkhan@mfrl.org.
