Branch History

The Kent Branch first opened in 1917, and was the first full-service location. In 1974 a fire destroyed the original branch, and it was then operated temporarily out of a storefront on Collingwood Blvd. The new branch opened in 1976 at its current location in the former Academy of Medicine Building. In 2010, as a result of a 2.2 million broadband federal stimulus grant, the branch was remodeled which has allowed for additional staff and public use computers.
