Edgar Tolson Folk Art Library

Edgar Tolson Folk Art Library at KFAC1The Edgar Tolson Folk Art Library was made possible through a gift from Dr. and Mrs. Paul Maddox, of Campton, Ky., whose generous contribution honors the memory of one of Kentucky’s best known artists, folk or fine. The Library recently received hundreds of volumes donated by the family of the late Richard and Maggie Wenstrup.

The library is available at no charge to groups in need of a meeting space, and the books and other resource materials there may be used but cannot leave the facility. Research through Morehead State University’s Camden-Carroll Library includes the listings for the Tolson Library, and below are links and directions:
