HISTORY

After a local petition drive, the original Fairdale branch of the Louisville Free Public Library opened in July 1974. The branch served the community for six years out of a second floor room at Fairdale High School. However, due to budget reductions, the Fairdale Branch closed its doors in August of 1980 along with three other locations. Determined to keep a library in the community, local volunteers maintained a small lending library that mainly consisted of donated materials. The volunteer library was housed in the Fairdale Memorial Playtorium.

After a long wait, the community of Fairdale received a new library in 1998 that was part of the newly renovated Fairdale Memorial Playtorium building. The library served the Fairdale Community in this building space until a new, 7600 square foot, energy efficient, free standing branch opened on March 24, 2012.

LEED

Built with advanced “green” technologies and eco-friendly architectural design, the Fairdale Library was awarded LEED Silver-certification in August 2013. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, an internationally recognized green building certification system providing third-party verification that a building was designed and built sustainably and with low environmental impact in mind. The Library’s green features include geothermal heating and cooling, daylight harvesting interior lighting, environmentally-friendly building materials, and energy efficient windows and fixtures.
