The Laurel County Public Library is proud to have a room dedicated to the history, literature, and some unique artwork that you can only find in Kentucky.

The Kentucky Room is a great source for your genealogy research because it contains many documents that aren't available online. While genealogy materials are reference only and may not be checked out, you may copy or print pages from microfilm as you need them.
