The Kenton County Public Library has received a grant from the Library of Congress for a community research project.

The Inaugural 2022 Connecting Community Digital Initiative Libraries, Archives and Museums Grant will go toward a project centered on African American History in Covington.

The project titled “Crafting Stories, Making History: The African American Experience in Covington, KY” creates three artist-in-residency opportunities for African American artists and community members, as well as opportunities for the public to learn more about community research, using the Library of Congress digital collections and complete projects related to their research interests.

The grant will also honor three residents who have been preserving history for the benefit of the community in a celebration and exhibit in April.
