The Bon Air Library opened in 1965 on land presented by the Bon Air Estates. The building was renovated and doubled in size to 20,000 square feet in 1992-93, expanding its collection to about 100,000 items. City of Louisville Alderwoman Barbara Gregg provided funding to add an outdoor reading garden on the east side of the building in 1995. The reading garden features a statue by Louisville sculptor Barney Bright donated by the Meadow Heights Women's Club in 1965.
