Ridgway Memorial Library

* COVID-19 Alert *

Ridgway Memorial Library is temporarily closed for visitors, but we’re still here for you! Our operating status is being reassessed daily, and we will restore public access to the building the day after the Bullitt County incidence rate moves out of the red/critical category for two consecutive days.

In the meantime, services including Curbside Pickups, Chat Reference (click the purple Ask a Librarian tab on the right side of the page!), and phone assistance remain available during regular service hours. We also offer a 24 Hour Library machine in the back of the building providing access to books, Blu-rays, DVDs, and audiobooks while the building is closed.

For the latest information on our response to COVID-19 and efforts to maintain public service while following the recommendations of health and emergency management authorities, please visit our Coronavirus (COVID-19) and BCPL page.


About This Location

Ridgway Memorial Library serves as the main library and administrative offices for the Bullitt County Public Library system. Originally the site of a family residence, the home was donated to the Library by Dr. and Mrs. Sam Ridgway in 1963. In 1971, the Ridgway home was replaced with an 8,000 square-foot facility, and the new Ridgway Memorial Library was dedicated on January 21, 1973. Major renovation projects were carried out in 1989 and 2006, when the building was roughly doubled in size.

Due to concerns including space, parking, and structural issues, the Bullitt County Public Library has purchased new land on Conestoga Parkway to build a replacement for this location. A construction timeline has not yet been established.
