Our branches are Pokestops & Gyms

Good news, Pokemon Go players – our Newport Branch is a Pokestop and Gym, our Carrico Branch is a Gym and our Cold Spring Branch is a Pokestop.

So, what does that mean? Our branches are hotspots for Pokemon.

Stop by, catch a few Pokemon, use our free Wi-Fi and check out a book or two.

Guest Blog: Puppy Tales makes reading fun for reluctant reader

Wilma & Buddy after Puppy Tales

Wilma & Buddy after Puppy Tales

My son, Buddy Fillhardt, absolutely loves visiting with Wilma, the rescue dog when she takes her appearances at the Carrico/Fort Thomas Branch for the program Puppy Tales.

One thing my son doesn’t like to do as much is to read, but he will read several books during his time with Wilma, as Wilma loves to be read to! A beautiful Saturday afternoon and my son’s main agenda is to go to the library and participate in the Puppy Tales program.

Wilma ‘s owner, Linda Miller, and Joyce Emery, Children’s Programmer at Carrico/Fort Thomas Branch, really go out of their way to make this program a success. We have so much fun with it.

My son likes the program so much, he even uses the library’s app to register himself for the next session or for other programs he is interested in attending. He is getting a great overview of how useful the app can be, while learning more about technology.
