Lexington Public Library Seeks Community Input for New Village Branch Design

The new facility will sit at the current site along Versailles Road in Cardinal Valley Neighborhood

Lexington, Kentucky (October 27, 2021) – The Lexington Public Library is asking members of the community to share their ideas and opinions for the design of the new Village Branch Library. The new facility will replace the undersized current site with a 26,000-30,000 square foot building to serve the Cardinal Valley/Versailles Road area, commuters in and out of the city, and all of Lexington. The project will be funded through library savings, public bonding, and a capital campaign through the Lexington Public Library Foundation.

The Library is offering two online surveys, drop-in activities at Village Branch, and an in-person community forum on Friday, November 19th from 4-5pm at Village Branch (2185 Versailles Road). Library representatives will also be attending events, festivals, parks, and schools to talk with members of our community.

Online surveys are available in English and Spanish until December 31:
