Brian Reynolds, Manager, Fern Creek Branch Library
The Library became a member of the Louisville Free Public Library in 1963 and remained a part of the system until funding challenges forced the Library to close in 1986. A grassroots, residential effort kept the Library open through the work of volunteers, donations, and a grant provided by County Commissioner Irv Maze.
The Fern Creek Library rejoined the Louisville Free Public Library system on November 29, 1993, in a new location north of the Community Center on Bardstown Road. The Library relocated in June, 1999, to its existing location 6768 Bardstown Road in the Cedar Springs 3 Shopping Center. A 2006 expansion increased space by nearly 25%, adding an imaginative children’s area. Today it is one of the most active branches in the Louisville Free Public Library system, checking out over 215,000 items in 2016 and visited by over 300 patrons a day on average.
Our children’s staff provide weekly programs and monthly outreach services to over 20 different daycares and schools in the Fern Creek area. Adult staff offer free computer courses, reference assistance, and a monthly book club. In addition to print material we now have eBooks and eMagazines as well.
We offer two rental spaces available to the general public. The Annex can accommodate up to 45 people and the Community Center can accommodate up to 100 people!
Rental dates are available by reservation. We currently have openings for your special event whether it's a community or neighborhood meeting or a wedding or wedding reception. Our recently renovated facilities will meet your needs at an amazingly affordable rate.

What Others Are Saying About the FCCACC!
FCCACC is a valuable networking opportunity for Wesley Manor. I’ve connected with several individuals from business, religious and civic organizations. These new relationships have led to fruitful community collaborations that otherwise would not have happened. Cliff Whalin, Director of Marketing, Wesley Manor Retirement Community
I always envied those people I spoke with who said they had fun working and growing their business, until I became one of them. Once I joined the Fern Creek Community Association & Chamber of Commerce I made a lot of new colleagues! Other people who were in the same boat as I and I didn’t even know it! Now I get the opportunity to meet new people on a regular basis who work and in some cases live in the same community as my business. I can discuss and share subjects like what and/or how their marketing/advertising venues are doing. Employee retention, customer flow, who’s moving into the area, who’s moving out, police or theft issues and the list, is ongoing.
After getting into Real Estate, I decided to network like crazy so that I could meet other small business owners and affiliates as myself. After visiting and joining several groups, the Fern Creek Chamber has BY FAR been my favorite group that I am a part of. It is a close-knit group of professionals who go out of their way to make new members feel welcome and who treat them like family. I have made many great relationships. I would recommend this Chamber to any professional who values the benefit of referral business. Jon Muscutt, Semonin Realtors
