Help Support The Library!

The Kenton County Public Library Foundation was created to help enhance the library’s mission of preserving yesterday, enriching today and inspiring tomorrow. Your gift assists in:

Preserving Yesterday

The Kenton County Public Library has the largest collection of both local and Kentucky history in the state. Funds donated help staff secure new equipment, programs, records, and databases the help those in search of the past.

Enriching Today

Develop and implement programs that encourage young readers by sponsoring the summer reading celebration

The Foundation gifts each incoming kindergartner each school year with a book to keep at home.

Donations make technology accessible to everyone through the library’s STREAM Center including 3D printing and more.

Inspiring Tomorrow

Donations to the library assist job seekers by providing technology that offers remote learning opportunities as the search for their next chapter.

The region’s first public makerspace, the STREAM Center along with the addition of meeting and performance space at the Erlanger Branch, were all made possible by donations from those in the community.
