Diverse Book Drive

September 1 – September 30

Your Casey County Public Library will be accepting donations* of new or gently used diverse books during the month of September, with an emphasis on books for school-aged children.

What does “diverse” mean?

Any book featuring characters or written by authors with an identity not normally found in the majority in Casey County. Your Casey County Library aims to add more books to the collection that will broaden readers’ perspectives or introduce them to new parts of the world and unique cultures.

To donate:

  • Used books:

    Call 606-787-9381 to schedule a drop-off time.
  • New books:

    If ordering online, new books can be shipped to the Casey County Public Library, 238 Middleburg Street, Liberty, KY 42539 care of Sammie Betler.
  • Money:

    Monetary donations may be dropped off at the front door. Specify the donation is for the book drive. Please make checks payable to the Casey County Public Library.
