Kenton County to break ground on Covington library expansion. (Business Courier, 4/13/2011)
Excerpt: The Kenton County Public Library will break ground Friday for the $12.5 million expansion and renovation of its Covington branch.
The Covington branch is 37 years old and the oldest of the system’s three branches. When the building was built, it wasn’t wired for computers. Its roof is original and must be replaced. Stairwells will be updated to current standards, and fire suppression sprinklers will be installed. The heating and air conditioning system also will be updated, and the library’s space will be expanded to accommodated increased use.
