A MESSAGE FOR THE COMMUNITY

By continuously advocating for public dollars and soliciting private donor dollars in support of the Louisville Free Public Library system, we are committed to ensuring the future of an institution vital in combating racism – an institution that serves all people in all areas of our community.
