Runners help raise money for Boyd County Library

Posted: Updated:

Folks turned out in Ashland Friday to walk and run for a good cause.

The Boyd County Library sponsored the inaugural 5K Walk and Run for Love Your Library at Central Park.

Dozens of runners of all ages showed up to help raise money to support the library.

Walkers made their way around the park to the finish line, then runners lined up to compete for top honors.

Runners say its for a very good cause.

"I don't think people realize how important libraries are and how many people depend on them not just for books because books are expensive and a lot of people cant afford to go out and buy one come here and get them for free, same with movies, get on the computers any number of things," Lisa Warmbrodt said.

Trophies were presented to the top runners of the race.
