Luna Library Grand Opening, Saturday February 19th

LEXINGTON PUBLIC LIBRARY MEDIA ALERT: THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2022

The Lexington Public Library and Believing in Forever are proud to announce the formal opening and ribbon cutting ceremony of a new Luna Library location at its Northside Branch located at 1733 Russell Cave Road, this Saturday, February 19 at 11am.

This family-friendly event will include a formal ribbon cutting ceremony, storytime program, and children’s activities as we celebrate diverse books featured in the Luna Library collection.

The Luna Libraries, a program of Believing in Forever, collects and distributes children's books with an African American history or Black character focus. Luna Libraries are an alternative for African American parents looking for books that provide context and knowledge to understand the stories of the African American experience in this country for their children. Believing in Forever is a champion of diversity and inclusion, and the positive impact books have on children of all races.

The Luna Library is named in memory of Lakeshia Campbell and Devine Carama’s daughter Kamaria who died in a car accident in 2020.

The Library and Believing in Forever will make remarks prior to the ribbon cutting and invite members of the media to attend.
