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 building will be closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak until further notice. Please keep library materials at home until we reopen. All fines will be waived during this period. Check this website or our Facebook page for updates.*
