Fascinating Facts

The Kennewick Library has something for everybody. We have great books and movies, but beyond our front doors are endless opportunities. You can skate, play basketball or tennis, take a stroll through the amazing gardens, get married under the gazebo, and dash through the whimsical fountains.

The river path running through the center of the library is based on the metaphor of the flowing river that unifies the Tri-Cities region.

The Kennewick Library turns 15 years old in May 2014. Can you believe that!
