Join Mayor Greg Fischer and the community on Sunday, October 5 at 2 p.m. as we celebrate the Grand Opening of the new 40,000 square foot Southwest Regional Library located at 9725 Dixie Highway; at Kendall Road near Valley High School.

At more than twice the size of the current branch, this new resource library will enhance service for nearly 100,000 people in southwestern Jefferson County. Filled with new books and cutting edge technology, the library will also be a community anchor where librarians will help families, children and adults access tools to improve their lives.  It will be a destination where community members gather to share ideas.  It will be a place that encourages learning and inspires the imagination.

This new library is one of three regional libraries included in the Louisville Free Public Library’s Updated Master Plan. The state-of-the-art building will be all on one level for easy access for all members of the community.

200years

Louisville – If you could step into a time machine, would you like to see how baseball was played in the 1860’s? Or meet President Abraham Lincoln? Or learn more about how World War I impacted the city of Louisville?

Such a time machine has not yet been invented but “200 Years on the Ohio” will be able to  serve the same purpose on Saturday and Sunday, September 20th and 21st at Riverside, the Farnsley-Moremen Landing.

“If you are a lover of history and interested in learning more about how Louisville developed throughout American history, you will love this event,” says Councilwoman Cindi Fowler (D) 14. “I want to encourage everyone to come out and enjoy this fun history lesson.”

“200 Years on the Ohio” will feature many living re-enactments representing Louisville’s history with historical re-enactors who will demonstrate the clothing, pastimes, foodways and weaponry from various periods between 1740 and 1940.

For the sports lover, there will be an 1860’s baseball game between the Cincinnati Buckeyes and the Cincinnati Red Stocking on Sunday at 1:00pm.

Dennis Boggs will offer presentations as President Abraham Lincoln.

Since 2014 marks the Centennial year of the World War I, a special exhibit will be on display from the Camp Taylor Historical Society. It will feature historical interpreters discussing many aspect of the “Great War.”

There will be period fashion shows, a Regency tea and dancing demonstrations along with archery demonstrations. There will also be tours of the historic Farnsley-Moreman House.

“Riverside is always working to show that our past has had a significant role in how far we have come as a city and a country,” says Fowler. “This is an event for the whole family.”
