The Kingsport Public Library invites adults to join us for the After Hours Book Club on September 27th 6:00-7:30 pm at Mr. Papa’s & Beer (330 Broad St. Kingsport, TN). September’s selection is Markus Zusak’s novel I am the Messenger.
Check out our newest database addition, Fold3. Fold3 provides convenient access to military records, including the stories, photos, and personal documents of the men and women who served. The records at Fold3 help you discover and share stories about these everyday heroes, forgotten soldiers, and the families that supported them. This resource is available only on the computers from inside the Kingsport Public Library (even your devices on our Wi-Fi).
Starting Tuesday, September 4th, the outside book returns will be moved from the Broad Street/Main entrance of the library to the New Street/Youth Services entrance. We appreciate your patience as we complete the final touches of our ongoing renovation.

The Kingsport Public Library is pleased to announce the completion of two paintings, for display in the library’s Youth Services Department, by award winning fantasy and comic artist Charles Vess. These paintings were commissioned by the Friends of the Kingsport Public Library in honor of the library’s former director Helen Whittaker. Please join us for an Art Talk and Unveiling on September 24th at 6:30 pm. Charles Vess will discuss his creative process and copies of books featuring his fantastic artwork will be available for purchase and signing after the presentation. Stop by early, 5:30-6:30 pm, to receive a tour of the newly renovated section of the library.
