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!

Gary Spielmann Day Photography Show

December 1 @ 8:00 am - December 31 @ 5:00 pm
Each year beginning in 2018, the Kinderhook Memorial Library recognizes Gary Spielmann Day on December 14 in honor of our long-time Board President and his myriad contributions to the Library and the community. Since we can't hold a large in-person program this year to celebrate, we want to share some of his beautiful photographic work with the community! Gary has personally curated an exhibit of his nature photography, featuring a selection of animals and landscapes from 19 countries and 18 national parks and wildlife refuges. The photos illustrate the beauty of nature, while revealing the diverse habitats of plants and animals on Mother Earth. Stop by the Library Meeting Room during open hours for the whole month of December and travel the globe without leaving the building!..Read More
