Andrew Carnegie once said that “a free library is the best gift that can be given to a community.” You may make a tax-deductible gift to the Kenton County Public Library Foundation in a number of ways:

For a Loved One: you may make a gift in memory of a loved one, friend or pet. You can also honor someone or celebrate an event. Simply designate whom you wish to memorialize or honor and designate to whom the Foundation should acknowledge your gift.

Special Services: you may also designate a gift on behalf of one of the Library’s many services including but not limited to:

  • Homebound Delivery – delivers materials to senior centers and those unable to physically get to the Library.
  • Racing to Read – an outreach program whereby staff visit daycares and Head Start programs on a daily basis to read to children and to prepare them to learn and read once entering school
  • Kentucky History – this department is continually seeking resources to add to its extensive collection and seeks to put as much information online as possible
  • Programming and Materials: help continue to grow the collection of materials on the shelves and build the free programming offered daily.

Buy a Brick: for a donation of $75 you can purchase a brick which will be located in the Reading Garden of the Erlanger Branch. This is a wonderful gift to celebrate an event or loved one. Download the order form.

The Library also accepts bequests and other planned gifts.  For more information on how you can leave a legacy through a planned gift, or for answers regarding any other gift opportunity, please contact Library Director Dave Schroeder at (859) 578-3600 or
