LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Shively Library is prepping for a big renovation that will close the branch for at least three months.
Thanks to donations from city leaders in both metro Louisville and Shively, the smallest branch in the Louisville Free Public Library system is getting an extreme makeover.
Library officials say the renovations include ten additional computers, a new entrance with better accessibility, and the addition of a family restroom. The plan also calls for improved heating and air conditioning systems, new carpets, ceilings and paint.
The remodel is necessary, officials say, because Shively is a high traffic branch and they want to better serve the community.
The Shively Library will close this Saturday, January 18 at 5 p.m. and will remain closed through April.
An official re-opening date hasn't been set yet, but they plan for sometime in April.
During construction, patrons are encouraged to visit the Iroquois, Southwest, and Shawnee libraries. Book drops at the Shively branch will also remain open for customers returning library materials.
Councilwoman Mary C. Woolridge is the largest funder of the project, donating $150,000. Shively Mayor Sherry Conner and the Shively city council will contribute an additional $50,000. Councilwoman Attica Scott and Councilman Rick Blackwell have pledged $10,000 each, and Councilwoman Marianne Butler has pledged $2,000.
