(Louisville, KY) - A new plan from Louisville Metro Council would stop the city's mayor from abruptly closing libraries. 

Over the summer, Mayor Greg Fischer closed both the Middletown and Fern Creek branches to save money. These closures came as a surprise to many residents. 

The mayor's office says this proposal could lead to deeper cuts in other city departments if passed.
