New KDLA Phone System
KDLA has a new phone system that goes into effect December 2nd. Each KDLA employee
has a unique 7-digit phone number—no more extensions! Kindly update your records.
We hope to serve you better once our new telephone system is in place.
Need to contact a KDLA employee? Find that employee’s new telephone number in the

Sign the Declaration for the Right to Libraries
Citizens across the Commonwealth are showing their support for Kentucky’s libraries by signing the Declaration for the Right to Libraries. The Friends of Kentucky Libraries plan to present the declaration signatures to the Kentucky General Assembly in February.
Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear was the first to sign the Declaration, followed by First Lady Jane Beshear, Lt. Governor Jerry Abramson, and Madeline Abramson. All the other constitutional state officers have signed. Many public libraries and school libraries are holding signing events so patrons can add their names to the declaration. You can give your support for Kentucky’s libraries by signing the declaration online at http://www.FriendsKyLibraries.org/.
