Kearney Library Book Club

Kearney Library Book Club meetings are the 3rd Tuesday of the month. Anyone wishing to join the book club, please call the library.

We now have an answering machine so patrons may call anytime to renew their books.​​

The first mention of a library in the Town of Kearney was in the library minutes which said, “A Public Meeting for the re-organization of the library was held October 9, 1925”,this seems to suggest that there may have been a library before this date, but there is no proof.

In the Early 1940’s the former Ryan’s Hall was purchased for a community centre by a town committee, and an extension was added on for the town office and library.

The library moved to it’s present location in 1984-85 when the town purchased the former public school to house the town office and library.
