New Library Card Sponsor: King & Knowlton Orthodontics

Posted on 10 January 2024 by Chris Brown.

The fine people at King & Knowlton Orthodontics are used to producing smiles, and they created many smiles around the library with their recent support for our #MHPLforYXH program.

King & Knowlton Orthodontics donated $2,000 to the program, also known as A Library Card for Every Hatter. The $2,000 donation equals FREE library cards for 400 adults in Medicine Hat (children’s cards are always FREE).

Dr. Kevin Knowlton says when a Medicine Hat Public Library board member told him about #MHPLforYXH, he thought it was a great idea.

“Libraries are an integral part of a community. If donating library cards can eliminate a barrier to access then I am all for it,” he says.

Knowlton says his favourite thing about the library, which he calls a collection of knowledge accessible to the curious, is the wide selection of books for everyone. “The children's section is definitely one of my favourites as my kids get excited to go through the stacks whenever we visit the library,” he adds.

King & Knowlton Orthodontics is a full-service clinic that offers comprehensive treatment for the entire family. Established by Dr. Keith King in 2005, the practice now includes Dr. Kevin Knowlton and Dr. Emily King. The team endeavours to treat all of their patients like family. The goal of everyone there is to provide exceptional care and have a positive impact on their patients’ lives.

Visit the library to get your FREE card or renew it online. To learn more about the program and the different ways you can be a sponsor visit our A Library Card for Every Hatter page.
