Kent Library's Athenaeum Series Logo

Kent Library’s Athenaeum Series, which began in the fall of 2007, derives its name from the classical Greek goddess of wisdom, Athena. These open forums, public lectures, and discussions were originally popular in Greece, but eventually spread to Rome and Western Europe. Kent Library’s series showcases the expertise of campus faculty, staff, and students. All events are free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. Please join us as we carry forward an ancient, but still vibrant, tradition.
