Learn, Share, Connect

Every day decisions are made that impact how library services, collections, programs and facilities are developed, designed and delivered. The input of library patrons and other stakeholders is important in helping the Library Board and staff understand the perspectives, opinions, and concerns of people impacted by those decisions. Our new Engage KFPL portal gathers all of our community consultation projects in one place. You will find opportunities to provide feedback through surveys and community meetings, reports sharing what you've told us through these consultations, and information about major projects like our Central Branch renovations.
