The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County is working with the community and staff to make your public library better than ever! In 2018 the taxpayers of Hamilton County approved a 1 mil levy that will provide the Library with $19M a year from 2019 – 2028, for a total of $190 million. Throughout 2019 the Library is engaging with the community and staff to create a Facilities Master Plan. Once it’s completed in December 2019, the plan will be used to guide a multi-year facilities improvement project we’re calling Building the Next Generation Library. The project will be primarily supported with levy funds.
