Making the Library "Career Central": Helping people find jobs and embark on future careers ensures that you create loyal library patrons for life. The Kenton County Public Library formed community partnerships with the Kentucky Career Center (KY’s unemployment office), our local community college and Next Act Program (for job seekers over 50) to show our commitment to helping develop our area’s workforce development initiative with great success. This program will give you some ideas on how to make your library Career Central for your patrons.
