Sorry, Our Branches are Closed

As Kentucky begins to safely reopen, the Library is working to identify services we can safely provide to the community. We want to ensure we have safe materials handling, proper protective gear for staff, and ways to deliver services in new ways. We promise to keep you up to date on our evolving plans. In the meantime, our digital services have never been busier, so connect with us today.

Curbside pickup of holds begins at the Eastside Branch on June 8, 2020.  Please check back for more details as they become available.
