The History of Our Library

Library on Brown St.

The North Kingstown Free Library at 100 Boone St. opened in December of 1975. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of this occasion AND the 60th Anniversary of the Friends of the Library, we have created a short film and a book. The book, The North Kingstown Free Library 1899-2015: A Book of Memories and Clippings is on sale at the library for $10. Click here to see the film, The North Kingstown Free Library: The First 116 Years. We hope you enjoy it!

Thank you for joining us to celebrate the library's history!

On Sunday, October 25th, the library celebrated the 40th Anniversary of the opening of the library at its Boone Street location AND the 60th Anniversary of the Friends of the Library. Celebrating were former Assistant Directors Paul Lefebure and Susan Berman, former Director Susan Aylward, Deputy Director Susan Moreland, Library Director Cyndi Desrochers, and former Directors Deborah (Brennan) Coons, Donna Dufault, Edna "Teddy" Lager and Shirley Payne.
