eBook Catalog gets a makeover

We've given the library's eBook Catalog a makeover! Discover how easy it is to browse ebooks and audiobooks, borrow them using your library card, and read or listen on your computer, tablet, or other device. You can even read ebooks right in your browser, and continue reading on another device!

Watch this short video introduction to the new, improved Catalog features.

Blind Date with a Book!
Stop by the library between Feb 1st and Feb 14th to participate in our “Blind Date with a Book” program! Its easy, fast and fun. Blind Date with a Book matches you with an unknown gift wrapped book which you choose to check out at the library knowing just the genre, without knowing the author, title, etc of the selection. Then you take your book on a blind date by choosing to meet with and read it and give it a chance to make an impression.

Best part.. you then get to let us know how your blind date went! Did you have a love connection? Did the date end early for whatever reason? Did something unexpected happen? We want to hear all about it! Click here to tell us about it on Facebook.  So stop by the library and meet your blind date.

NEW Digital Sign
Stay informed about library activities, services and programs on your next visit to the library with our new digital sign.  Located near the circulation desk, this virtual billboard is updated frequently to keep you informed about what's happening at the library. 

KDL What's Next Database
Looking for the list of James Patterson's series or how many series Karen Kingsbury has written?  The Kent District Library's What's Next™ database is the premiere resource for finding books in series information. Search for series information by author or series title, including series with multiple authors.

Follow us on Facebook!! Connect with fellow library lovers, keep up-to-date with library activities and programs.  Or see embarrasing pictures and videos of the library staff. 
We'd love to have you as a "friend".
