• 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 $96,800 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.

  • 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.
