KINGSTON — On Jan. 26, you and your entire family are invited to an extra special event.
Your library staff and neighbors are working to bring you a new library within a new community center building at the Village Green. Visit the future building site at 3 p.m., and at 4 p.m. come to the library to warm up with delicious local fare and festivities. We’ll have activities for all ages. Check our online calendar or call us in case of any updates.

On Friday, children can drop off a stuffed animal or doll at the library, and on Saturday you can come to pick it up between 1-6 p.m. This event works best with a not-so-favorite stuffed animal that a child can easily live without for 24 hours.
