Welcome to the Kent Memorial Library where you can find a warm New England small-town welcome and still connect with the modern resources and technologies you need to operate in the 21st century.
The Kent Memorial Library has been serving the Kent community since 1850 when Orinda Pratt first wrote about the Library and its services. It has been located at its present site since 1922. Read more history of the Library.
Today we offer books, magazines, audio books, DVDs and programs for all ages. Our Website also serves as a portal to the best information sites on the Internet including a catalog of all the libraries in Connecticut and resources where you can check health care, consumer reviews, investment guidance and even ways to locate your ancestors. Read more about the role of the Library in the community. You will also be interested in our Long Range Plan, completed in 2009.
Our Junior Room is one of our great assets and the variety of programs is the envy of other libraries. A team of librarians works with the Parents’ Committee to introduce young people to the world beyond and create an atmosphere for learning, sharing and meeting other children and young adults with the same interests.
