Beat the Cold at the Library

It’s cold outside and parents are looking for affordable indoor activities. The Kenton County Public Library has you covered! All three locations offer an indoor play area with board games, toys, Legos, pretend play, sensory play, toddler slides and so much more. And, of course, they all offer computers, books, movies and Wi-Fi. We also have several free programs to help get through this cold spell.
