LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Fern Creek and Middletown are losing their library branches this weekend.
The Louisville Free Public Library is shuttering the two branches this weekend so the materials inside can be moved before their leases expire at the end of June.
Library spokesman Paul Burns says the timing of the closure also coincides with the opening of the Northeast Regional Library in mid-June. Burns says they will lose 80 positions when the new budget kicks in July 1 and says the closures allow for proper staffing across the system while the Northeast Regional Library gets ready to open.
The materials at the two closing branches will be re-distributed around the library system.
