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 January 9, 1967, the Loveland Branch opened in the basement of the Loveland Methodist Church. The branch was moved into part of the old IGA building in 1973, placing it closer to the elementary school and the local shopping center. By the early 1990's, an even larger building was needed. In January of 1993, the branch moved to its current location in the Shopper’s Haven Shopping Center. In 2016, the branch underwent a renovation project into a second storefront next door, which included the addition of a new TeenSpace MakerSpace, a meeting room and study rooms. The Grand Reopening ceremony was held on October 11, 2016.
