The Kenosha County Library System is launching a newly expanded catalog later this month, following a merger with Lakeshores Library System of Racine and Walworth counties.

Library collections change with the times.  (Kenosha News, 10/22/2015)
The library system — both in its brick-and-mortar buildings and on its website — has thousands of resources that go well beyond books. At Southwest Library, librarians said some of the least-known items available for checkout or use in the buildings range from a magnifier that can help decipher tough-to-read documents, to digital conversion kits patrons can use to convert old VHS tapes to digital formats. For students, there are online study guides for Advanced Placement exams available under the “homework help” tab on the system’s website, and music files that can be downloaded form home.
