About Kent District Library - Richard L. Root Branch 
The Kentwood branch began as a county library bookmobile stop on South Division near 44th Library-altStreet in what was then Paris Township. At the request of the township, the county library established the first permanent branch in 1955. A new state-of-the-art, 46,000-square-foot, two-story facility opened in August 2010. In 2012, the branch was renamed after former Kentwood mayor Richard L. Root in honor of his dedication to the community and to the library.
