Libraries and bingo. Not two things you usually associate together. But we think it’s a perfect combination. It lets people win prizes while learning more about all the materials and many great services Boyd County Public Library offers. So, all during February, we play Library Bingo – and give prizes to everyone who gets “five in a row.” It’s simple to play: just complete the library “task” listed on the square, and have it initialed by a staff member.  You … Continue reading

The New Year signifies fresh beginnings and limitless possibilities. And, in case you didn’t know, it’s also when the fashion industry starts setting all the trends you’ll see in the months and years to come.

Join a book club in 2013

One of the coolest things we do at The Library every year is connect people in our community – and beyond – through the making and receiving of Valentines. We call it Hands that Touch a Heart, and this is the ninth year we’ve been doing it at BCPL. It’s a simple idea: kids, teens, parents – anybody – who visits the library between early January and early February takes a few minutes to make a homemade Valentine. Then, we … Continue reading

Patrons spoke, and the library listened. Last fall’s move to uniform story hours for toddlers and preschoolers was not well-received by parents and caregivers, so Boyd County Public Library is switching back to its previous times. The 2013 story time programs include Toddler Time at the Catlettsburg, Main and Kyova branches; and Preschool Story Time at Main and Kyova. The Catlettsburg programs will resume as soon as the branch reopens in February (an exact date has not been set). Toddler … Continue reading

Libraries are transparent and accountable

By Debbie Cosper, Boyd County Public Library Director There has been a great deal written about State Auditor Edelen’s report on Special Districts, most of it negative, or worse, conflicting. Libraries have been referred to as “ghost governments.” This is just not the case. We are overseen by the State Librarian and Commissioner and the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives; we file our budgets with our county clerk and judge-executive offices; we submit annual budget reports to the Department … Continue reading
