The Kentucky Room contains many items of interest to genealogists, especially those researching Fayette County families. A list of important resources may be found in Resources for Genealogists .
The Kentucky Room collection frequently benefits from thoughtful gifts. Published family histories, Lexington telephone directories and city directories dating prior to 1976, and both new and out-of-print books are extremely welcome additions to the Kentucky Room Collection.
