KCPL & KCPR Partnership Brings Free Public Computer Access to Worton
Kent County Public Library (KCPL), in partnership with Kent County Parks and Recreation (KCPR), is pleased to announce the establishment of a KCPL Worton Computer Facility located at the Kent County Community Center. The Computer Facility, which was dedicated on July 9, has seven internet-access computers that are available for public use. In addition to providing free and easy access to online library resources and educational games, the Computer Facility houses a shelf of books available to be borrowed on the “trust“ system.
Like all KCPL locations, the Computer Facility is free and open to the public. Those who do not have a Community Center Facility Access Card can request a guest pass for computer use at the Community Center's front desk. Use of the computers is governed by KCPL's computer use policy and the facility is monitored by the Community Center staff.
KCPL is excited to be participating in this new collaboration and sees it as an opportunity to reach members of the community who may not be able to regularly utilize library resources at the branch locations. It is the hope of both KCPL and KCPR that this partnership will enhance access to library and computer resources for all who use the Community Center.
