Youth Services

​​​​​KDLA supports public librarians who serve children and young adults by providing training, consultation, and coordination of statewide reading promotions. While we do not provide direct services to children or teens, our goal is to assist library staff who provide services to the children and teens of communities across the Commonwealth.

​Please contact Amy Olson with any comments or suggestions.

Looking to make a recommendation for an artist or performer to help out your colleagues across Kentucky? Look no further than the Kentucky Library Presenter Roundup.​

The Kentucky Library Presenter Roundup was created by the Kentucky Library Presenter Roundup (KLPR) Committee and the website is maintained by the Kenton County Public Library. Included performers have been recommended by Kentucky public library staff and vetted by the committee.​

You will find artist and performer recommendations for children, teens, and families in a variety of categories including animals, musicians, magicians and more.​
