Libraries provide access to information, public awareness, educational opportunities, aid in cultural development and foster intellectual freedom.

With the recent completion of the renovation project and building addition, the Kingman Carnegie Library is one of the strongest core libraries in the state. We want to maintain the tradition that has been established by inviting you to join with others to support our continued growth and improvement.

Purpose:
The Friends of the Kingman Carnegie Library is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to promote the interest and welfare of the library as an educational, cultural and recreational asset to our community.
