LFPL’s newest, state-of-the-art regional library will open its doors to the public on Monday, June 24th. The much-anticipated, 40,000 square-foot Northeast Regional Library—located at 15 Bellevoir Circle off Ormsby Station near the Northeast YMCA—replaces the smaller Westport branch and will enhance service for more than 170,000 people in eastern Jefferson County.
Come celebrate the grand opening with Mayor Greg Fischer and NERL staff. There will be tours of the library, refreshments, and activities for the whole family. The event is free and open to the public.
Similar in size and scope to the award-winning Southwest and South Central Regional libraries, Northeast houses more than 120,000 books and materials, and includes comfortable, quiet spaces for reading and studying, several meeting rooms, an auditorium, a large children’s area, and a separate teen space. New to LFPL, the Northeast Regional will feature an innovative, hands-on “makerspace” with audio/visual lab and demonstration kitchen, plus outdoor teaching and programming space.
