Chevy Stevens, author of ‘Thrillers’, visits Kingston | Check It Out

Although Spring is coming, we have plenty of those rainy days left, which are perfect for watching a film, listening to a story or music, and reading a thrilling book. At the library in addition to books, we have magazines, music and movies you can check out. If you want to learn to download a book, a magazine, or a song from our catalog, please make an appointment with us.

We also have a special author visit in March and invite you to meet New York Times Bestselling author Chevy Stevens at your library.
