• Welcome to the Killingworth Library

    Killingworth Library started in 1964 with the can-do spirit of local people willing to roll up their sleeves to find space, build shelves, donate books and manage the desk. Today, community donations and town support have given us a beautiful library facility with something for everyone. Our Library Association is a non-profit organization run by 18 hard-working volunteer board members who are responsible for raising more than $87,000 of our annual budget this year, with the Town generously funding the rest. To keep costs down, we do a lot of hands-on work in fundraising, finance, program planning, computer maintenance, security, grounds upkeep, and interior building maintenance.

  • The Library Turns 50!

    Not all of us look forward to turning the big 5-0, but in the case of the Killingworth Library, which was created 50 years ago this winter, 2014 means a year-long celebration with programs, events, fundraisers and commemorative merchandise. Among the ideas in the works are historical programs, kids poster contests, an open house, and discussions about books from 1964. The library’s Facebook page will have “fun facts” from 1964, and we’d love you to post what YOU were doing that year! A new 50th anniversary logo will be used throughout the year.

  • Commemorative Bricks Are Back!

    In 1995 one of the many fundraisers to get the present library built was the reading garden commemorative bricks. Back by popular demand, they are now available once again to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Killingworth Library Association. You may purchase a 4 x 8 brick, engraved with up to three lines of text with 21 characters per line including spaces and punctuation for $500.
