As we get ready to observe Teen Tech Week (March 10-16), it seems like a good time to showcase all the outstanding technology that BCPL offers the 13-18-year-old set. The theme of Teen Tech Week 2013 is “Check In @ your library.” It’s a time where libraries nationwide throw open their physical and virtual doors to teens to showcase all the neat stuff we have for them.

Employees at BCPL were recently trained in the procedures for Code Adam, the country’s largest child-safety program. BCPL is only the second library in Kentucky to launch Code Adam, according to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.

We are thrilled to have received Exemplary status from the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives. This is the highest rating a library can receive in Kentucky.

Standards provide a guide to excellence, and define … Continue reading

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
