Next Generation Libraries Project

Thanks to the residents of Hamilton County, the Library will receive approximately $19 million in additional funding for the next ten years beginning in April 2019, for a total of $190 million. Given that the average length of time since a branch has been renovated is 40+ years, the bulk of this funding will go toward improving each of the Library’s 41 locations. The development of the Plan will take place throughout 2019, and the Library will hold hundreds of community engagement sessions to listen and learn from the community about what their biggest needs are and how the Library, with its 41 locations, can be re-envisioned to serve not just today’s generation but also generations to come.

Branch History

The Anderson Branch Library opened on June 7, 1981 and quickly became one of the busiest branches in Hamilton County. In response to the growth of Anderson Township, 5,000 additional square feet of space was added to the building in 1988, making it the largest branch in our system. A number of interior and exterior improvements were made to the property during the renovation, including expanding the children’s area, enlarging the collection, and purchasing additonal computer work stations. The newly expanded and remodeled facility was rededicated on August 28, 1998. The Anderson Township Library Association plays an important role in supporting the services and resources of the Anderson Branch.
