Children’s Events

The Nelson County Public Library would like to welcome you and your children to our story time programs.

  • Story time for 2 year olds (Toddlers) is Friday from 10:00-10:30 a.m.

(What parents/caregivers should know about 2 year old storytime)

  • Story Times for 3-5 year olds (Preschool) are Wednesday 10:30-11:15 a.m.and Thursday 1:30-2:15 p.m.

(What parents/caregivers should know about 3,4,5 year old storytime)

Rules for 2 Year old Storytime:

  1. Sessions are limited. You must sign up.
  2. Please be on time.
  3. Do not bring food or toys into the story time area. Food and drinks are not permitted in the library except on special occasions.
  4. You should not sit in the story time area and chat with other parents once the program starts. We enjoy seeing parents become friends and make new acquaintances, but please do this before and after story time. Turn all cell phones and pagers to vibrate, and please, if you feel you must answer your cell phone, take it outside.
  5. Story time will be shorter in length for this age: approximately 25-30 minutes.
  6. Parent/caregivers must attend story time with the child. If you feel comfortable with this, we prefer you sit on the floor with the child.
  7. Books and activities will be introduced that encourage children to interact with the story time leader. Parents/Caregivers are strongly encouraged to interact as well!
  8. If your child has difficulty settling down, becomes restless or begins to cry, you should remove your children from the area so he/she will not distract others.

Rules for Preschool storytime (3-5 year olds):

  1. Sessions are limited. You must sign up.
  2. Parents or caregivers do not need to attend story time with the children if your child shows he/she can handle story time alone We leave that decision up to the parent/caregiver’s discretion. The librarians may ask you to attend if extra help is needed. If you do choose to attend, we want you to actively participate!
  3. Adults should not sit in the story time area and chat with other adults once the program starts. By talking during the program you are demonstrating to your child that the program is not really important or worthy of his or her attention. Turn all cell phones and pagers to vibrate, and please, if you feel you must answer your cell phone, take it outside.
  4. Please discuss story time with your child before you come. Explain that there will be stories, finger plays, singing and such. Young children need to know what to expect and what is expected of them. They need to understand that they are going to the library where they will not be allowed to run or yell. However, it is okay to respond to the storyteller during the program.
  5. Please be on time. Story time starts promptly. Young children are easily distracted and late arrivals become the focus of interest.
  6. If your child has difficulty settling down, becomes restless or begins to cry, you should remove your child from the area so he/she will not distract others.
  7. Do not bring food or toys into the story time area. Food and drinks are not permitted in the library, except on special occasions.
  8. Parents of preschoolers, please observe whether your child is ready to attend a structured program. Although we welcome all young children, some toddlers are not developmentally ready for sitting still for 45 minutes or more. If a child begins to talk or play, it distracts the other children and the program.

Library Resources

Library Resources

Every year many visitors from other states and countries spend time researching their genealogy here. Our library, which recently moved to spacious new quarters at 201 Cathedral Manor, includes a new Genealogy Room that has an extensive collection focusing on Kentucky and states and territories from which the original Kentucky settlers came; including Virginia, Maryland, Tennessee, Pennsylvania and the Carolinas. Nelson County was formed from the territory known as Jefferson County in 1785. In 1792 Kentucky became a state and from the original territory that was Nelson the following additional counties were formed: Hardin 1793, Washington 1792, Green (part) 1793, Bullitt (part) 1797, Ohio 1799, Larue 1842, Marion 1832, Spencer (part) 1826, Butler (part) 1810, Daviess 1815, Grayson 1810. We have information about this entire area as well as the surrounding states from which most of Nelson Count settlers came. The library online catalogue includes the entire genealogy collection. The collection houses and catalogues both the library’s collection and books that have been purchased by the Nelson County Genealogical Roundtable, an active local history group. Click here to go directly to our Online Catalogue. The Roundtable, founded in 1984 has purchased many books and microfilms, gathers donated local materials and organizes and maintains family files, and transcribes public records. They have printed books of these records that makes information readily available to genealogists all over the world. The group also provides volunteer research assistants in the Genealogy Room whenever the Library is open. Recently, they purchased a digital microfilm machine with local funds that makes it much easier to view and print from microfilm. Below are highlights of the genealogical collection.

  • KY Death Certificates
  • 1911-1956 Baptismal Records
  • Complete Cemetery Transcription done in 1970s and 1980s
  • Local Newspapers
  • Charter of Ordinances of Bardstown
  • Minute Books of Bardstown Trustees
  • First Presbyterian Church of Bardstown Records
  • Nelson County Court Records such as: Early Marriage Records Various Bonds Deeds Wills Circuit Court Records Birth & Death Records 1850s-1910 Papers pertaining to Debtors Tax Records

A great source for original records can be found in the Sutherland Building, 113 Stephen Foster Avenue; Telephone 348-1820. Records are stored in the basement.
