Keep Calm and Get Your Literary On! This week’s Louisville Library Life feature brings you free healthcare options, talks about our great city with history buffs, crocheting as a hobby, and a veggie contest style cook-off. In Louisville alone, there are 18 libraries. In the southern Indiana cities of New Albany, Clarksville, and Jeffersonville, there are 3 locations. Out in Oldham County there are three libraries, and Bullitt County boasts four themselves. That’s not even mentioning our other surrounding counties-what’s your favorite library? I’m partial to Jeffersontown. Now go plan some FREE library fun for the weekend!
