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 has returned to regular hours. Masks are still required for all visitors. Thank you!
