Homebound Delivery Service

What is the Homebound Delivery Service & who qualifies? 

Homebound Delivery is a service designed to offer Library materials to Kenton County residents with a disability or medical condition that prevents them from visiting the Library. A note of medical confirmation stating these limitations may be required. 

  • Patrons of this service must be a Kenton County resident.
  • Services are provided without regard to age, race or gender.
  • Free deliveries are made monthly. 

What types of items will Homebound bring?

You can request any item the Library carries including books, magazines, audio books, movies, games and music. The Homebound Department can even help you select books based on your interests. 

Kenton County residents and congregate living centers can call 859-962-5062 or email homebound@kentonlibrary.org to sign up or request more information. 

Racing to Read Preschool Visits

What is Racing to Read?

Racing to Read serves preschool children at child care facilities in Kenton County. The goal of the program is to introduce children to books and reading so they are prepared to learn how to read when they enter kindergarten.

Certified teaching staff from the Racing to Read program visit centers monthly.  During each visit, Library employees read stories to children, allowing them to interact with books and hear how words are formed. After the stories, children and their caregivers are invited onto the Racing to Read vehicle to check out materials from among the collection of 6,000 items shelved on board the vehicle. In addition to books for children, the program also offers teacher resources and books so that caregivers can continue exposing children to books and reading.
