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. Learn more on the Building the Next Generation Library site.


The Madeira Branch grew from humble origins as a circulating collection housed in a shop on Laurel Avenue. A new building located at the corner of Euclid and Miami was dedicated on June 13, 1965. Architect Carl Strauss was awarded the Gold Medal by the local chapter of the American Institute of Architects for his design. A remodeling and expansion of the Madeira-Indian Hill-Regional Branch was completed in April of 1993. Notable features of the remodeled building include copper gutters and light shades echoed in a copper hood over the story pit, and a distinctive mosaic of ceramic tiles at the entrance. In January of 2001, the facility was renamed the Madeira Branch Library to better reflect the community it serves.
