Every member of KI has an account set up in the Library.  There is no need to sign up or worry about a library card.  The circulation and catalog system is computerized using specialized library software.  There is also a computer running MS Office applications with Internet capabilities and printer available for general use.

It’s a great place to relax with a book or do work on your laptop – wireless Internet access is available.   Please stop in and enjoy all the wonderful resources we have to offer!
