  • Press Release: Join BCPL in Celebrating the Everyday Heroes of Our Community

    Heroes don’t always wear capes! Sometimes, the greatest heroes are the everyday people who work to help others and improve their communities. Obviously, this includes first responders like police officers and firefighters, but local volunteers and people who look out for their neighbors are also heroes in their own right. In honor of those individuals and anyone who wants to discover ways they can give back too, Bullitt County Public Library is hosting its first ever Community Heroes Festival on Saturday, March 23rd. The festival will showcase local charities, organizations, and people who give back to their community in amazing ways.
