Kingswood Library

About Kingswood's Library

The current location of our library happened during the major church renovation project during the early 1990’s.  We currently have nearly 3,000 items to share with the congregation, mostly books, but also a healthy number of DVDs. Our collection is supported by a very generous Kingswood Endowment Committee, library memorials, and numerous book donations from our congregants. We are open on Sunday mornings between services for browsing/check out, and we are excited to announce that the Kingswood library is going ONLINE. We can be reached via email ( with pick up in the Fireside Room. Yes, we are a church library. Yes, we have some “churchy” books, but also a huge collection of books dealing with issues like immigration, discrimination, poverty, civil rights, environmental concerns and more. Our novels should entertain you and make you think. Hopefully you will become one of our regular customers. Check us out! 

Introduction to the Library Catalog

Kingswood's Library team has been implementing a new, online library system. As a result, the  library catalog of nearly 3,000 items is now available for browsing  from your home computer. We have a few more months of work to do, therefore check-out will remain the same, by signing a card, but we want you to take a look at our collection now.
  • Check Out
All materials are checked out for two weeks, with renewal options. You may check out materials on Sunday mornings between services, 10:00 to 10:30 am, or request materials online by emailing  We will notify you and leave requested materials in the Fireside Room on the Library pick-up/drop-off table (currently in the northeast corner). You may return items in a similar manner or drop off in the library during library hours.
  • Searching the Catalog
The main search box is in the middle of the page. Insert title, subject or author. There is a second search box in the upper left corner of screen which offers more advanced searching options. And for the younger readers, we have a search box found by clicking on the blue happy face. The Visual Search tab, (copper colored button) will allow you to see our entire collection; by Dewey Decimal number, fiction, interest level, or type of material. Once a book title pops up, click on the photo of the cover and more descriptive information will appear; reviews, donor information, and availability (which will not be accurate until the system is activated).
  • New Books to our Collection and Specialized Lists
The most recent list of books purchased in the last 30 days scrolls across the bottom of screen. Under Lists, currently only a list of Bible books is available, but keep you eye here for more specialized lists to come.
