Celebrate Louisville Free Public Library during National Library Week

In honor of National Library Week, I want to take this opportunity to recognize and celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of your own Louisville Free Public Library.

Your library system has experienced great momentum over the last decade. Since 2011, LFPL has provided nearly 90,000 free educational classes and innovative programs in support of lifelong learning, checked out 40.6 million books and served 28.4 million visitors across Metro. Thanks to the $30 million in capital funds nearly allocated by Mayor Greg Fischer and Metro Council during this time, the Louisville Free Public Library has opened three new, 40,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art regional libraries—Southwest, South Central and Northeast — as well as a new branch in Middletown. Add that to new libraries in Newburg and Fairdale and renovated branches in Shawnee, Shively, Bon Air, St. Matthews and Iroquois, LFPL has increased access to books, new technology, and meeting spaces for more than 760,000 residents in Jefferson County.
