Are You Pretty In Pink? Come join us for a fun-filled hour of colors. We sing songs, read books, dance dances, and do activities all about color.

Hands-on science activities for all ages! LIGO, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory near Richland, WA, searches for gravitational waves from exotic events in outer space. Learn more about LIGO's science mission as you make and measure a variety of types of waves and do simple experiments based on light and sound.

We love art and science. We love to combine the two. Come join us as we see what art has to offer science and science has to offer art.

Color, Color, Everywhere! We love color. We're reading, singing, dancing, and learning about color.

Come join us as we see how art is science and science is art. They both do experiments to get to the right solution.

Fascinating Facts

The Kennewick Library has something for everybody. We have great books and movies, but beyond our front doors are endless opportunities. You can skate, play basketball or tennis, take a stroll through the amazing gardens, get married under the gazebo, and dash through the whimsical fountains.

The river path running through the center of the library is based on the metaphor of the flowing river that unifies the Tri-Cities region.
