Welcome, Ryan Brennan 

The North Kingstown Free Library Board of Trustees is pleased to announce the appointment of Ryan Brennan as the 11th Director of the North Kingstown Free Library.  Ryan knows the NKFL and the North Kingstown community because he served our library with distinction on two previous occasions. He returns to North Kingstown with solid experience working in administrative positions at public libraries in Wyoming, Massachusetts and Rhode Island; and he has a very forward-thinking vision and philosophy of public library service. As Ryan approaches the challenges of leading the North Kingstown Free Library into the future, he takes the reins of a world-class institution with a storied history and a strong record of service to the community. He begins his tenure as Director on Monday, November 29th.
