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 updated our hours for Curbside Pickup beginning on Tuesday, July 14. Please visit this page for pickup procedures. The building will remain closed to the public until further notice. Check this website or our Facebook page for updates.*
