The Mid-Columbia Libraries Kennewick Branch opened May 19, 1999. However, service in Kennewick began much earlier than that. In August of 1949, the library was moved from a temporary location to a more permanent building vacated by the Bank of Commerce until funding for a new library building could be acquired.
Beyond our front doors are endless opportunities at the adjacent Highlands Grange Park. You can skate, play basketball or tennis, take a stroll through the amazing gardens, get married under the gazebo, or dash through the whimsical fountains.
