Kent Mulcahy

Kent Mulcahy has been with the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County for over nine years, and has served as the Grants Resource Librarian since September of 2017. Kent was introduced to the world of nonprofits through the various dog rescues he and his spouse have worked with since moving to Cincinnati in 2008.

Aside from a monthly set of three consistently well attended classes, Kent regularly presents off-site workshops on the Foundation Directory Online to both large and small organizations in the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky areas. He recently introduced to his regular offerings an advanced user’s class on the Foundation Directory titled “Advanced Funder Research Lab.” While still honing its content, feedback has thus far been highly positive. Aside from evaluation form responses commenting on the great information offered by Candid classes and the Foundation Directory, Kent’s favorite compliment to receive is that his classes make, in one attendee’s words, “...what could easily be stuffy and intimidating topics and databases fun.”

He earned his master’s in classical guitar performance from the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music in 2010, and a Master of Science in Library Science degree from the University of Kentucky in 2015.

Kent lives in Covington, Kentucky with his spouse Katie (also a librarian), red-headed eighteen-month-old son Max (not a librarian...yet), Labrador-Pitbull mix Raleigh, and American Pitbull Frances (dogs are not eligible to be librarians).
