Welcome to the Kinderhook Memorial Library.

Our mission is to connect our patrons with information – traditional and new media. Now, more than ever, libraries are becoming community centers, gathering spaces, and places not only for learning, but also for entertainment. The links above will orient you to our innovative programming and services.

The Library will be closed from 10am-12pm on Friday, December 14 for our opening ceremony. All are welcome to attend, and regular library services will resume at noon.
