Fern Creek Library

The Fern Creek Library is closed indefinitely due to anticipated budget reductions, driven largely by the increase in our state pension bill. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we look forward to continuing to serve you at the South Central Regional, Jeffersontown branch, or one of our other library locations.

Any materials you have on hold will be delivered to the South Central Regional Library -- 7300 Jefferson Boulevard -- unless otherwise requested.

 You can also visit us online at LFPL.org for 24/7 access to LFPL's wide selection of eBooks, downloadable audiobooks, and other digital services.

Thank you for your patience during this difficult transition and for your continued support.

History

The people of Fern Creek have consistently supported libraries, founding the Fern Creek Community Library in 1937 with donations from the Louisville Free Public Library.   The original library was housed in the Fern Creek Community Center and staffed by members of the Fern Creek Women's Club.  The Library became a member of the Louisville Free Public Library in 1963 and remained a part of the system until funding challenges forced the Library to close in 1986.   A grassroots, residential effort, kept the Library open through the work of volunteers, donations, and a grant provided by County Commissioner Irv Maze.  The Fern Creek Library rejoined the Louisville Free Public Library system on November 29, 1993, in a new location north of the Community Center on Bardstown Road. The Library relocated in June, 1999, to its existing location in the Cedar Springs Shopping Center.   A 2006 expansion increased space by nearly 25%, adding an imaginative children’s area.
