Earlier today, construction started on the new South Central Regional Library. The new library will replace the current Okolona branch of the Louisville Free Public Libraries and it is the second of three regional libraries to be built. The library will be located at the intersection of Jefferson Boulevard and McCawley Road. It will be similar to the Southwest Regional Library.
The project, which will cost more than $14 million, will feature a larger book selection as well as DVDs and materials in several languages. The project is expected to be complete in early 2017.
