Everyone is Welcome Here

The Kenton County Public Library is invested in your health and well-being. The library has a robust collection of materials for you to borrow in digital and print formats as well as fantastic electronic resources for Health & Wellness. Libraries are advocates for healthy communities.  

For the past few years, we have been building our health and wellness class offerings at each of our library branches.  It is our intention to make wellness accessible to everyone and our hope that the classes will provide you with a welcoming space to discover new interests, build community and possibly support local businesses that specialize in wellness. It is important to the library that the classes offered are well-rounded and focus on all aspects of your well-being: emotional, mental and physical. 

Find a wellness class that’s right for you at the library! If you don’t find something you're looking for please make a suggestion or if you would like to offer a wellness class at the library, please contact Erin DeSantis, Health & Wellness Librarian, she curates the wellness offerings across the library system.
