The South Central Regional Library Project

Construction is nearly complete on the new South Central Regional Library located at 7300 Jefferson Boulevard near the Jefferson Mall (site plan). The 40,000 square foot library opens Friday, July 21 at 10:30 a.m. with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony with Mayor Greg Fischer and members of the community. For more information on the Grand Opening, visit our Facebook event page.

The state-of-the-art South Central Regional Library will replace the considerably smaller Okolona branch library and will enhance service for more than 160,000 people in south central Jefferson County. Filled with new books and cutting edge technology, the library will be a place that encourages learning at all stages of life.

COLLIDER Artist-In-Residence Program

COLLIDER Artist-In-Residence Program

A new feature of the South Central Regional Library is the COLLIDER Artist-In-Residence program. The COLLIDER provides a space for local artists to take up residence at the South Central Regional Library, work on their craft in a public space, and engage with the public. This allows LFPL to nurture an already thriving art community and to encourage creativity and artistry in all citizens. Special thanks to Councilwoman Madonna Flood for making this paid artist-in-residence program possible.
