Construction continues on the 40,000 square foot Southwest Regional Library located at 9725 Dixie Highway; at Kendall Road near Valley High School. Mayor Greg Fischer, Library Director Craig Buthod, Metro Councilman David Yates, Congressman John Yarmuth, representatives of the Library Foundation, the Library Advisory Commission and a crowd of hundreds, officially broke ground on the project July 2, 2013. The library is expected to open Summer 2014.

This new library is one of three regional libraries included in the Louisville Free Public Library’s Updated Master Plan. The state-of-the-art building will be all on one level for easy access for all members of the community.

At more than twice the size of the current branch, this new resource library will enhance service for nearly 100,000 people in southwestern Jefferson County. Filled with new books and cutting edge technology, the library will also be a community anchor where librarians will help families, children and adults access tools to improve their lives.  It will be a destination where community members gather to share ideas.  It will be a place that encourages learning and inspires the imagination.
