Kent Library
Starting with the Library . . .

Library resources go through a review process.
Librarians select books, magazines, journals, databases, Web sites, multi media, and archival materials. The library collects sources considered reliable, historically relevant, and valuable.

Library resources are free or discounted for your use.
Library materials can be shared by many people.

Library resources are organized.
Items are organized so you can easily find sources on a topic. For example, when you search for a book in the library catalog you will get a call number. The books shelved near the same call number will cover a similar topic.

Library resources are meant to be kept permanently.
As well as finding very current information, you can also find books that are no longer published, older issues of magazines, historical documents and more.

Library resources come with personal assistance.
Libraries have staff who are trained to help you. They'll help you learn to use online resources and answer any questions that you have.
