In 2016 we celebrated the centenary of the opening of Dartford Public Library.

This timeline traces 100 years of Dartford history, from the opening of Dartford Public Library on 1st January 1916, through the 20th Century and into the 21st Century.

Research for the timeline is being carried out by Kent Libraries, Registration & Archives staff and volunteers at Dartford Library and the Kent History & Library Centre in Maidstone.
