Louisville Free Public Library Branch Wins AIA Design Award
The Kentucky Society of Architects awarded its highest recognition, the 2019 AIA Kentucky Honor Award, to LFPL's St. Matthews Eline Library for the striking design of the 19,000-square-foot space. The renovated library branch opened in May and houses more than 70,000 books.
"It is a beautiful space for individuals to expand their intellectual horizons, a place where families can spend time together researching faraway places, and for groups to utilize the conference rooms," said St. Matthews Mayor Richard Tonini. "We dreamed big and then found a way to make this important community resource happen."
