The newly renovated Shively Library
About the Project
Thanks to substantial contributions from Metro Councilwoman Mary Woolridge and an appropriation by Shively Mayor Sherry Conner and the Shively City Council, the Shively Library now boasts a new, separate library entrance, more public internet computers, and improved handicap accessibility. The project also includes a new family restroom, improved heating and air conditioning systems, new carpets, ceilings and wall finishes.
Entrance modifications to the Library and City Hall improve ADA accessibility and new landscaping, exterior paving and signage help to identify and enhance the library entrance.
Councilwoman Mary Woolridge committed $150,000 to the project. Those funds went toward construction costs and outfitting the renovated library. Shively Mayor Sherry Conner and the Shively City Council also contributed $50,000 to the project. Councilwoman Attica Scott pledged $10,000 in recognition of the many District 1 residents who use the Shively Library. Councilman Rick Blackwell also pledged $10,000 and Councilwoman Marianne Butler pledged $2,000 to the project.
