October 17-23, 2021 has been designated National Friends of Libraries Week!
Friends of the Library groups operate in many counties across Kentucky to support the work of their local libraries.   Our libraries need more support than ever before to meet the increasing demands for service.  You can help by:

  • visiting your local library this week and asking if there is a Friends group
  • becoming active in your local Friends group or helping start one in your county
  • joining the Friends of Kentucky Libraries at


The Friends of Kentucky Libraries is a nonprofit organization made up of individuals and local Friends chapters and local boards of trustees who support and celebrate Kentucky’s libraries.

We are…
– a network of library supporters from across the state sharing ideas and news
– a source of assistance for creating or revitalizing your local Friends of the Library Chapter
– a unified voice to advocate for your library and all Kentucky Libraries
