KCPL kicks off National Library Week Monday; full slate of events planned throughout the week

National Library Week runs April 23-29. This year’s theme, “There’s More to the Story,” encourages people to explore everything the Kenton County Public Library offers. The library is full of stories in various formats, from picture books to large print, audiobooks to ebooks, and more.

In addition to its collection, the library advances the community by providing literacy skills and support for job seekers, businesses, and entrepreneurs. Patrons can borrow tools, large yard games, hotspots, telescopes, musical instruments, movies and music. People can even stream movies, music, and audiobooks from the comfort of their own homes.

“We’re thrilled to celebrate National Library Week with our community,” said Library Executive Director Dave Schroeder. “Libraries play an essential role in supporting lifelong learning, and we’re excited to showcase all the resources and services available.”

More than 150 free programs are offered each month. A few of the programs being offered during National Library Week include:
