Apr. 09, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

ASHLAND -- The Boyd County Public Library is sponsoring the inaugural Love Your Library 5K run/walk on Friday, April 26.

The walk is set for 6 p.m. April 26. Participants will walk around Central Park, about 1.25 miles. The run portion starts at 7 p.m.

Those with a current library card can register for $8. It costs $10 to pre-register for those without a library card and the cost increased to $15 the day of the event.

T-shirts will be given to the first 125 to register.

There will be refreshments and door prizes including an iPad and a family pass to the Highlands Museum and Discovery Center.

The event is sponsored by the library, friends of the library and the museum. The goal is to raise awareness of the library and literacy.

Awards will be given to more than a dozen age groups from under the age of nine to those 70 and older, according to a press release.

Registration forms are available at the main library and as the Catlettsburg and KYOVA branch. Checks should be made out to the Huntington Road Runners Club.
