In 2018, an impressive 1,903,085 people visited Kent District Library's What's Next® database to find the answers to those questions and more. If you break that number down, that's an average of 5,200 people a day looking for the answers to their burning book series questions! 

Since the mid 1990's staff at Kent District Library have worked diligently to keep the What's Next® database as current and up-to-date as possible.  Just last year, 3,040 titles, 336 authors and 683 series were added to the database.  Not only is this a go-to resource for KDL staff, it's also a go-to resource for readers across the country. Take a look at what users of this fabulous resource have had to say and then make What's Next® your favorite book series resource!

My students are always asking for suggestions or "what's next" and I always point them to your database. I've started using the site to keep my collection up to date by checking for missing titles in series and your database has been a lifesaver!" ~ Chrissy
