Congratulations to the Kent Library mobile site contest winner!

Monday, June 13th, 2011

This past Spring you may have seen a QR-code circulating around with the tagline  ‘Take us along for an answer: Kent Library mobile’ – this was part of a contest promoting Kent Library’s mobile site: scanning the QR-code with a smart phone would pull up the Library’s mobile site, where there was an opportunity to enter a drawing for a Kindle. We’d like to thank all who participated, and to congratulate the winner of the Kindle; Kayla Doss. We’d also like to invite and encourage using our mobile site for research and information on the go! library.semo.edu/mobile
