Inspired by the popular Humans of New York series, Friend of the Library Rebecca Brackmann has created a series called “Humans of Kentucky Libraries.” HoKYL features patrons and public servants from libraries around the state. In these counties, library services are absolutely essential. Those places and those people are doing work on the ground level in struggling communities, giving people hope and resources to improve themselves, and their counties. We hope you enjoy reading the stories of the people, communities, and their libraries, and continue advocating for these essential public services for all counties in KY. Many thanks to Rebecca for taking the time to work on this project!
