Little Free Libraries are Back!

With winter gone and warm weather on the horizon, Kingston’s Little Free Libraries are back up and running!  Looking for a good read?  Stop by one of the little free libraries and take a book!  Have a good book you’d like to share?  Drop it off in one of the libraries for someone else to enjoy!

What is a little free library?
A Little Free Library is a “take a book, return a book” free book exchange. They come in many shapes and sizes, but the most common version is a small wooden box of books. Anyone may take a book or bring a book to share. Little Free Library book exchanges have a unique, personal touch. There is an understanding that real people are sharing their favorite books with their community.

Where are the little free libraries located?
The Little Free Libraries are located in seven different locations around Kingston: Town Hall, Gray’s Beach, The Ah-de-nah,  The Police Station, The Reed Community Building, Sampson Park, and Kingston Intermediate School.  Libraries were built by the Silver Lake Regional High School Carpentry Program.

How can I donate books?
Donating books is easy!  Simply find one near you and place your donations inside!

The Little Free Libraries are a Kingston Community Fun project, a collaboration of the Library, The Adams Center, Council on Aging & Recreation Departments

July 22nd – A Cultural and Historical Reflection of the 1960s Through the Music of The Beatles

The Beatles are one of the most influential bands in music history. With an estimated 73 million viewers, the “Lads from Liverpool” burst onto the scene in 1964 on The Ed Sullivan Show. On April 4, 1964 they became the only artists to ever occupy the top five spots of the Billboard Hot 100 chart simultaneously. They would go on to release landmark albums like Revolver and SgtPepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band .  They consistently broke musical barriers and have sold more than one billion records.

Fran Hart, founding member of the Beatles tribute band 4EverFab, will perform live music with a multi-media presentation to explore – not only the music of The Beatles – but the influence they exerted on the cultural landscape. The presentation is free and open to all and will take place at the Kingston Council on Aging on Monday, July 22, at 1:00PM. The Council on Aging is at 30 Evergreen Street in Kingston.

This presentation is sponsored by the Kingston Public Library and the Kingston Council on Aging and is supported in part by a grant from the Kingston Cultural Council.  Please register using the button below.  For more information contact Al the library at 781-585-0517 x6279 or email aealy@kingstonpubliclibrary.org
