Kearney Public Library

Public libraries are learning centers that provide information for residents to meet their personal, educational, and professional needs, including access to print materials, internet, and technology. A makerspace is available to create and learn.


The Kearney Public Library exists to provide equal access to ideas, and to promote the enjoyment of reading and the pursuit of lifelong learning. This is accomplished by making available to the public a varied collection of books, audiovisual materials, programs, technology, and other resources. The Library believes in the freedom to read, to learn, to discover.

The Makerspace is a DIY space where you can create, invent, and learn. Reserve time on one of our many machines and learn as you go. We value the process involved in making, tinkering, and figuring things out. This is lifelong learning at its finest. Equipment includes: 3D Printer, AccuQuilt, Adobe Computer, Book Binder, Button Maker, Cricut Maker, Die Cutting Machine, Digitization Station, Laminator, Sewing Machine, and Shrink Wrap Machine.
