The St. Matthews library has been a proud member of its community for over forty years. After being in temporary quarters over a bank along Shelbyville Rd. and later in a home on Brown Ave., the library moved to Church Way in 1958. The Eline family donated the land behind the St. Matthews Methodist Church as a memorial to Sidney Eline, Jr. who had been killed in the Second World War. The City of St. Matthews erected a modern ranch-style facility on that site and it quickly became a focal point of the neighborhood.
The brisk activity of the Sidney Eline Memorial Library prompted two expansions of the Church Way facility. In 1993 the City of St. Matthews acquired a 3-story brick building on Grandview Ave. that had formerly been the Futural Federal Savings and Loan and prior to that the Greathouse Elementary School. A million-dollar remodeling project by the City of St. Matthews resulted in a unified City Hall building housing the Clerk's Office, Police Department, Beargrass-St. Matthews Historical Society and the library. Because of the generosity of Mayor Art Draut and the City Council, the library was moved into its new home on April 11, 1994.
