The Kingston Library building is now open to the public for browsing. Our staff members are working hard to make your visit as safe and comfortable as possible.

We will continue to offer grab-and-go service in our lobby for those who prefer it.

If you would like to return your items, our street-side book return on Prospect Street and the book return near the front door of our building are open and staff members are emptying them daily. Please note that items will be quarantined for 24 hours and will not be checked in until after that time. You will not be charged late fees.

We are excited to be able to get items to you.
