The Kennewick branch is the only branch of Mid-Columbia Libraries that is regularly open at 9 a.m. (six days a week) and open until 9 p.m. (Monday through Thursday.) Kennewick is also one of three (also Pasco and West Pasco) branches open on Sunday afternoons from 1-5 p.m. Come visit us seven days a week!


Color, Color, Everywhere! We love color. We're reading, singing, dancing, and learning about color.

Come join us as we see how art is science and science is art. They both do experiments to get to the right solution.

Why are colors like magic? Come to story time as we read, sing, dance, recite, and do activities all about the magic of color.

Come visit with one of the trained volunteers from the Tri-City Genealogical Society and learn how to research the history of your own family. Learn how to use the library databases HeritageQuest and Ancestry Library Edition.

And, it's free!

Come join us for the science of technology as we use legos, clothespins, pencils, and cups to build scientific designs.

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.
