• KDLA Celebrates Black History Month

    Civil Rights Bill 1964

    Martin Luther King, Jr. and baseball great Jackie Robinson met with Governor Edward T. Breathitt in March, 1964 to urge passage of a civil rights bill under consideration by the Kentucky legislature. The Kentucky Civil Rights Act did not pass until 1966, when King said it was “the strongest and most comprehensive civil rights bill passed by a Southern state.” More information and other photos are available in the KDLA e-Archives.

      • Drive Safely!

        slick road

        During the winter months, it is important to take appropriate steps in driving, and to prepare for contingencies if you have a winter related issue while driving. The Kentucky State Police provides helpful information on its Winter Driving webpage.

        Because the leading cause of deaths during winter storms are transportation/automobile-related issues, it’s an excellent time to review the key points of defensive driving in winter conditions with your family or staff. The State Library has a Recommended Resource List for Driver Training. The DVD titles listed are appropriate for individual and group training. To check out one of the DVDs, follow the instructions on the safety list or call the State Library at 502.564.8306 or 800.928.7000.
