New Fairdale Branch of Louisville Free Public Library to Open Next Summer

Link to December 15 Louisville Courier-Journal article, "Fairdale gets look at library plans".

Excerpt: Construction of the 7,000-square-foot library is expected to begin soon on the site of a former police substation that was demolished recently.

Taylor, who's 18 and plans to attend Jefferson Community and Technical College after he graduates in May, said the renderings “look great.”

Library officials say the new branch at 10620 W. Manslick Road will feature a room for teens to congregate next to a general community meeting room
