A History of the Kent Free Library, Kent, Ohio 1958-1992.
Getrost, Christina D.
The Kent Free Library (Ohio) evolved from the Great Atlantic and Western Railroad Reading Room of 1875, into a municipal Carnegie library, and then grew to be a medium-sized public school district library, in the city of Kent, Ohio. Its original building has been enlarged through three separate expansion campaigns, in order to have space to house its ever-increasing collection, to provide meeting rooms for community groups, and to best serve its increasing numbers of users, both citizens and university students. This study chronicles the many changes that have occurred in the library's collection, budget, staff, services, and physical facility from 1958 to 1992. (Contains 9 references.) (Author)
