Friends of the Kings Park Library
Welcome to the Friends of the Kings Park Library. The Kings Park Friends group was organized in 1976, and has actively supported the Kings Park Library since that time.
Over the years, the Friends have worked to enrich the library experience of Kings Park patrons. Children's programs have been a main focus of the Friends group. Patrons are further greeted and supported by beautiful stained glass window hangings, computer and multimedia equipment for the Library staff and patrons, shelving equipment for display of materials throughout the Library, periodicals for our diverse patronage, and murals and paintings by our own unique artist, William Crockett.
If you will, please consider being a Friend of the Kings Park Library. Ask any of the Library staff about becoming a member, and work with us to provide the very best for your enjoyment.
