Monday Writing Hours: Looking for other folks to write with? Join us every Monday from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM for dedicated quiet writing time at the Louisville Public Library. We're in the upstairs Board Room: sharp right at the top of the stairs. Feel free to come and go any time. Beverages allowed in closed containers; Bittersweet Coffee shop is directly to the west.

Lighthouse North is located in the Office Evolution building at 357 S. McCaslin Boulevard, Suite #200. Click here to see a map. GPS directions for this location are often incorrect; please use the following directions to find us: 


From Highway 36, take the McCaslin North exit. At the fourth light, turn west onto Century Drive (there's a Walgreens on the northwest corner). Take your first left (by the daycare on the corner). When the road splits, stay right, and at the stop sign, it's the two-story brick building on your right with a sign outside that says Office Evolution. Inside the building, follow the Lighthouse North signs to the conference room. Parking is free and located around the building.
