About The Library

There’s a community treasure in Kensington that hundreds of townspeople visit each year– it’s called the Kensington Public Library. We’ve come a long way since Joseph Chase Hilliard built our library in 1895. Today, the Kensington Public Library serves the community as a place to read, to learn, and to meet. Through our collection of books, audio books, magazines, and movies, and our public access computers with fast Internet connection, Kensington residents enjoy the benefits and services of a modern library while maintaining the warmth and friendliness of a small community library.
