Housed within the Department of Museums, Archives and Rare Books at Kennesaw State University, the Bentley Rare Book Museum serves as a University and community resource on the history and significance of the written and printed word. The Bentley Rare Book Museum preserves and makes available a diverse collection of manuscripts, rare books, and fine press materials used in teaching and research.
The Bentley Rare Book Museum collection is the result of the dedication and passion for books of two men: Mr. Robert B. Williams, Senior Curator of Rare Books, and Mr. Fred D. Bentley, Sr., a Cobb County lawyer and avid book collector. In the late 1980s Mr. Bentley donated a large number of nineteenth and early twentieth century first editions as the foundation of the Museum collection. Since that initial donation, the collection has grown and developed, evolving into an assemblage of manuscripts and books representing the history of the book with a focus on the English-speaking world. Today, the Museum holds over 8,000 items, ranging from Sumerian clay tablets and medieval manuscript leaves to modern fine press books and literary first editions.
Housed within the Department of Museums, Archives and Rare Books at Kennesaw State University, the Bernard A. Zuckerman Museum of Art presents significant works from Kennesaw State University's permanent collection while regularly exhibiting contemporary works of various media by local and nationally-recognized artists. The ZMA serves as a center for the enrichment of the arts, arts education and professional development. Through the creation of uniquely curated exhibitions, community outreach, workshops and programming the museum acts as a bridge between the campus and the community while also providing dedicated exhibitions for the KSU students and faculty in the ZMA's satellite gallery.
