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

In the early 1960s, a group of concerned citizens, led by the Montgomery Woman’s Club, petitioned library administrators to provide a branch for Blue Ash. The Sycamore Branch Library opened in June of 1964 in the central business district of Blue Ash. In 1986, the building was closed for renovation and expansion. During this period, the branch operated out of a temporary storefront location. The Sycamore Branch reopened on September 27, 1987 as a completely redesigned facility. It was renamed the Blue Ash Branch Library in January 2001.
