Preschool Storytime

Join Miss Sam on Wednesdays from 9/28-11/16 for a special Preschool Storytime at 11:00 AM!

Each week we’ll build early-literacy skills through books, songs, fingerplays, and more!

This is a drop-in program that will be held in the children’s room and will feature a short craft after the storytime.

This program is recommended for ages 3-5, but younger siblings are welcome to join.

No registration required. 

Music and Movement Storytime!

Join Miss Sam for a magical musical storytime on Mondays from 9/26-11/14 at 10:30 AM.

The goal of this storytime is to help toddler and babies get those wiggles out in the most fun way possible, and read a few stories along the way!

This program is for ages 0-3 and will be held in the children’s room. No registration required!

There will be no storytime on Monday October 10th as the library is closed for a holiday. 

“Senior Center Selections”- work from the class of Violet Barry.

“Senior Center Selections – work from the class of Violet Barry” will be on display in October 2022 at the Kingston Public Library.
The art gallery at the Kingston Public Library will be hosting several selections of art from the classroom of COA art instructor, Violet Barry, for the month of October. Ms. Berry came back to teaching after a long and varied career in the classroom working with children of all ages, as well as being a portrait painter and a stained-glass artist.
When she returned to the classroom, this time she chose a new group to share her talent: Senior Citizens. Ms. Barry sees them as “wonderfully talented” and her class has become “like family and dear friends” and she is “so proud of all their work.”
The exhibit will be on view in the Library’s gallery throughout August. The Kingston Public Library is open Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays 10 a.m.-8 p.m.

Little Free Libraries

Little Free Libraries are OPEN!

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
