Kids Cool Off with a Free Movie this Friday!

Fridays at 2:15 pm is the time for free movies with free popcorn in the Children's Activity Room. This Friday we will be showing a Disney film with a patriotic theme - just in time for Independence Day!

Kingwood and LEED Certification


Kingwood Library just received our LEED Silver Certification. LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) is a recognized green building certification. To receive the Silver Certification, a building must earn 50+ points out of 100 points. It focuses on five major areas: sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy & atmosphere, materials & resources, and indoor environmental quality. We recycle and there are cans around so customers can join in helping us. The library is in a green belt to provide a connection to nature and reduce the heat island effect. The roof is white to reduce the amount of heat that enters the building, important in Texas summers.
