  1. I want to run in the 5K because I think it’s for not only a great cause, but one that’s important for our community – and it’ll be the first 5K I’ve ever done!

  2. I plan to participate in the Library 5K because the foundation’s cause is one I care about, from a community resource I use (very) often and it will be my first 5K. Win, win, win!

  3. My favorite thing about the Kenton County Public Library is that if there are ever books I want to read that aren’t already part of their circulation, KCPL is always accommodating by helping me find it through the Interlibrary Loan or even purchasing the items. A fantastic resource!
