In Kentucky the school library is regarded as the hub of the school community and integral to teaching and learning. The power of the school library lies in the programming, resources, services, and instruction it provides educators and learners to support learning. Stakeholders come to appreciate Kentucky's school libraries because of their experiences using the space, accessing materials, and learning-through-doing. With the release of the "National School Library Standards for Learners, School Librarians, and School Libraries" (AASL 2018), Kentucky school librarians are using the standards to transform the science of school librarianship and inspire the enhancement of school library practice. This article describes the role of Kentucky school libraries and the support networks undergirding the state's school librarians.
