MMX 027 Portland LFPL Branch

This stop along the Northwestern Parkway finds us at the  Portland Branch of the Louisville Free Public Library. From the website of LFPL:

The Portland Branch opened on December 18th, 1905, with 1,400 books selected from the Main Library’s collection. For the next eight years, the branch operated at two different temporary locations near 26th and Portland Avenue.

A grant from the Andrew Carnegie Foundation provided the funds for the Library’s permanent building. On October 24th, 1913, the Portland Branch opened to the public at 3305 Northwestern Parkway.
