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 is making appointments for book browsing and computer use beginning on Tuesday, October 6. To make an appointment, please call the Library at 518-758-6192.
