WFPL’s Stephanie Crosby covered Kentucky Fair Board President Harold Workman‘s presentation to a Metro Council committee Thursday. Workman discussed the future of the Kentucky Kingdom site. But during the meeting, he said something else, which Stephanie reporter for WFPL–conventions scheduled for Nashville this week have been flooded out, and local officials are hoping to nab some last-minute relocations.

“We did the same thing when Katrina hit New Orleans, we were very successful in fact,” says Workman, “and we think we will be on this occasion. It’s unfortunate that this has happened; we wouldn’t want it to happen in Louisville, of course. But someone is going to house those conventions, and host those, and we think Louisville is the right place for them, particularly if they want to be in this part of the country, they might as well be here.”

It’s raining pretty hard in Louisville on Sunday night. We have two flood updates from Twitter user Dannie Gregoire.

…Reports of 6″ over Brownsboro @ Linsay and water rescue at 8th and Jackson.

Well that was quite a day. Here’s what we reported on:

The Louisville Free Public Library has cancelled its fall book sale, but the Friends of the Library will hold another sale in the spring. Consuming Louisville is also sponsoring LFPL fundraisers.

In a round of cross-linking that would make Ouroboros proud, Michelle at Consuming Louisville has noticed my comment that all of the benefits for the LFPL require eating.

Well, now you can help the library and not have to eat a cake, cookie or tortilla full of eggs:

Photographer Courtney Paris has donated a photo session and prints to Consuming Louisville. The prize will be sold in a silent auction.

Bidding continues through Sunday. I’m tempted to bid, but I can’t seem to hide my bake sale and breakfast burrito belly bulge.

Michelle at Consuming Louisville has another benefit for the Louisville Free Public Library, but this time it’s not a bake sale; it’s an internet meetup (technically a tweetup) at the Highlands Q’doba.

[The Highlands] Qdoba will be donating $1 from every burrito sold during the breakfast burrito tweetup to the Library Foundation.


So this Friday morning come to the Bardstown Road Qdoba location (corner of Bardstown Road and Eastern Parkway) to enjoy some tasty, tasty breakfast burritos, socialize with cool internet people and support the library all at the same time.

With all these food-related library benefits, I think we’ll have to organize a LFPL 5k.
