FRANKFORT, Ky. (March 3, 2015) – The Archives and Records Management Division of the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives (KDLA) will conduct free tours of the new State Records Center in Frankfort, Friday, March 13. 


Construction of the new State Records Center began in March 2013. Staff began transferring over 190,000 cubic feet of records from two separate rental facilities into the new building in April 2014, and completed the move in October. Records from 71 state government agencies and 91 counties in the judicial system are currently stored in the Records Center.


“Working from a single facility, rather than from two separate locations, allows more efficient operations and better service for all of the Records Centers’ customers,” said Barbara Teague, state archivist and records administrator.


The one-hour tours are at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and are open to the public.


The State Records Center is located at 1425 Leestown Road in Frankfort. For planning purposes, please contact Jim Cundy at 502-564-1703 or to select a tour time and confirm attendance.


Since two tours are being offering, KDLA recommends that individuals carpool. Individuals may also use the staff parking lot behind the main Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives building at 300 Coffee Tree Road in Frankfort and use provided transportation to the State Records Center. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before each scheduled tour for this parking option.


KDLA provides equitable access to quality library and information resources and services, as well as helps public agencies ensure that legislatively mandated documentation of government programs is created, efficiently maintained and made accessible.
