Take This Virtual Tour of the New Kennett Library and Resource Center

Mark Hostutler

Great communities build great libraries.

Welcome to the new Kennett Library and Resource Center, a project that has been in the making for the last 20 years.

Via the video above, take a tour of this 21st-century building that will be open to everyone regardless of age, race, nationality, and social and economic standing. Some highlights include a 110-seat auditorium, a warm and welcoming conference room that honors Bayard Taylor, several classrooms, an outdoor terrace, and more.

Groundbreaking will take place this summer for an 18-month construction timeline. A grand opening is planned for December 2022.

Stay tuned to the Capital Campaign website for updates and ways that you can help support this transformational project.
