A Note to Our Patrons:

Effective Monday, March 16, 2020, all University System of Georgia institutions (including the Bentley Rare Book Museum at Kennesaw State University) will temporarily suspend events to allow time for USG institutions to test their business continuity plans and online instruction and for state officials to continue to assess the current situation regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) in Georgia. During this time, the Bentley Rare Book Museum and its collections will be closed to researchers and guests. Remote research and instruction services will be available on a case-by-case basis. Please continue to check our website and/or social media pages for further updates. Email rarebooks@kennesaw.edu with questions.

The Bentley Rare Book Museum, hosted within the KSU Dept. of Museums, Archives and Rare Books, is Georgia’s first rare book museum and the state’s third largest museum-grade rare book collection. We invite you to explore our free exhibitions, join us for public programs, or schedule a research visit with our archivists and curators.
