Due to the rapid spread of COVID-19 and with the direction of local and state health and government agencies, the Kenton County Public Library is closed until the crisis has passed.  This was a very difficult decision to make.  Our staff is dedicated to serving the community and this long period of closure is challenging.
 
Even though our buildings are closed, we are still providing services electronically.  Please check out our social media platforms for upcoming tutorials, information about online databases and eBooks, and virtual storytimes.
 
Our webpage is also a wonderful resource for research, homework help and entertainment.  We provide cardholders with access to more than 150 databases including eBooks though Overdrive, eBooks, music and videos through Hoopla and homework help through Learning Express as well as many other resources.
 
Interested in local history and genealogy?  Check out our History and Genealogy webpage.  This resource is full of old photos, access to databases such as Heritage Quest and many local newspapers and records.
 
The library is trying to make things a little easier for our parents who are at home teaching their children.  Try out our databases and online chat reference feature.
 
We are also reaching out to the most vulnerable in our community.  I bet you didn’t know the library provides books and other materials to over 450 homebound residents of Kenton County.  Although we cannot deliver items at this time, we are doing wellness calls to make sure they have everything they need to make it through these challenging times.
 
Please use your library and know we are here to serve you.
