We want everyone to feel like this is their library

“There’s a homelessness problem in Eastern Kentucky, and libraries probably saw it before anyone else, aside from law enforcement. We provide a safe place for them to be, with air conditioning and heat, internet, and books to read. Some people aren’t comfortable with those patrons, but we won’t ask anyone to leave if they’re not doing anything. We want everyone to feel like this is their library.”
