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

Library service to the community began in 1919 when a deposit station opened in the Cheviot Building and Loan Company. Ten years later, a full-service branch opened in rental quarters on Glenmore Avenue. The library operated at several locations in Cheviot until 1962, when the current building was dedicated. The design by Cellarius & Hilmer in the “modern ranch home” style fits well within the community.
