About Kingston Libraries

            

Kingston Libraries, through shared resources and shared community space, contribute to our community’s information, recreation and culture needs.

Kingston Libraries, with its nine sites located throughout the municipality, assists Council to provide equitable access to a diverse range of social, educational, cultural and recreational opportunities, as well as providing for partnerships with the community.

Through the provision of Internet, Wi-Fi and personal computing facilities, Kingston Libraries assists every resident in accessing the Information Age. We understand that people like to learn how to use the Internet in a friendly environment and offer hands on classes that give the opportunity to ask questions. Class sizes are small with notes provided and are for free.

Search the catalogue online, read or write a review, and discover new books, DVD’s and more. There are also collections in Arabic, Chinese, Greek, Italian, and Vietnamese. Find links to a range of free eBooks, eAudiobooks, and other electronic resources in our eLibrary. We also provide a range of free research databases for you to use at the library and from home.

Join us for a host of interesting, fun, and enjoyable events for adults and children.

We offer a range of programs for children, including Storytimes for babies, tots, and children, as well as various activities for primary school aged children interested in books, games, craft, and other STEAM based activities. Kingston Libraries also run a school holiday program four times a year.

A free home library service is available to members of the Kingston community who are temporarily or permanently housebound due to age, illness, injury or disability and have no reasonable alternative to home delivery of library materials.

Discover a whole wealth of information about your local area complimented by the Kingston Local History website. You can also research your family history by accessing a comprehensive genealogy collection and computers.
