LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — The Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE) and the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives (KDLA) announced a partnership Thursday that will provide all state residents with free access to the Kentucky Virtual Library during the upcoming school year.

“My administration is education first and this pandemic is demonstrating how we need to further our efforts to provide educational opportunities to all Kentuckians,” said Gov. Andy Beshear. "I applaud this collaborative effort between CPE and KDLA to provide this opportunity.”

The virtual library, administered by CPE, is an association of nearly 300 libraries and institutions across the state, including colleges and universities, public libraries, K-12 schools and hospitals, among others.
