For over 100 years, the Kenton County Public Library has endeavored to enrich the lives of the residents of Kenton County and the region with books, information, programs, and services. Your support will help ensure the Library’s mission to preserve yesterday, enrich today, and inspire tomorrow.
Books, CDs & DVDs - The Kenton County Public Library gladly accepts your gently-used items such as books, DVDs, CDs, reference materials and like items that you might see in the library. The Library does not accept magazines. Those items that are not used in the Library’s collection will be donated to the Friends of the Kenton County Public Library. The Friends will sell these items at their book sales held throughout the year. Proceeds from the book sales go back to support Library programs and services.
Historical Items - As one of the largest resources for local history in the region, the Kentucky History Department is always searching for items to add to its collection. If you have items including photos, newspapers, yearbooks, maps, family history/local history books or anything that demonstrates your roots or heritage in the community the Library would be happy to accept them. You can also designate a financial gift to the Kentucky History Department. For more information on donating items or funds, please contact Elaine Kuhn at (859) 962-4085.
The Kenton County Public Library has a large collection of artwork from regional and national artists including Dixie Seldon and Frank Duveneck. Anyone interested in donating artwork to the Library should contact Library Director Dave Schroeder at (859) 578-3600. The Library’s Board of Trustees will review the request and make a determination on whether the piece will be accepted.
