Kenton Libraries Make Gift-Giving Easy

From the Kenton County Public Library:

Pick up some holiday presents for a great price and help the library while doing so. The Friends of the Kenton County Public Library will be conducting a week-long book sale at the Erlanger Branch library (it began on Sunday and runs through Saturday, December 8). The Friends will be selling nearly new and used books, movies and music with proceeds going to the library. The sale closes thirty minutes prior to close each day. The Erlanger Branch Library is located at 401 Kenton Lands Road off Dixie Highway. The library is open on Sunday from 1:00-5:00PM, Monday through Friday 9:00AM to 9:00PM and Saturday 10:00AM to 6:00PM.
