Kent County Public Library, "The Friendly Library on the Highway," was the first public library in Kent County to offer free WiFi access.
Free Internet-accessible computer stations are available for library users; these have Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Publisher software. Our collection of fiction and non-fiction books, movies, eBooks, and audiobooks continues to grow. The circulating collection of magazines, journals, and newspapers is supplemented with online access to more than 2,500 full-text periodicals.
Free activities and programs throughout the year address the needs and interests of all ages. Weekly story times, computer classes, resume workshops, book discussions, film series, author visits, consumer health seminars, and reading programs are just a sample of the variety presented.
Kent County Public Library is part of the Kent County Department of Community Services. The Kent County Public Library operates a bookmobile that visits Hartly, Cheswold, Felton, Frederica, the Veterans Hospital, the Kent County Complex, and a number of other locations. To obtain a current listing of locations, dates and times contact the library office at (302) 698-6440 or view the schedule on our website.
Materials from all Delaware libraries are accessible via the online catalog available in all libraries or via the Internet at www.lib.de.us or by clicking on "Online Catalog” from the library home page. Your Delaware library card is accepted at public libraries statewide.
