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 fledgling Mariemont Library, which opened in 1926 in the corner of a building on Chestnut Street, had 750 books on its shelves and served 33 families. Over the next fifty years, as the community grew, the branch was housed in a variety of buildings including the Mariemont Recreation Building and the Plainville School. The current building, on a one-acre site near the Mariemont High School, was dedicated in September 1972. It was dedicated in memory of Library Director Ernest I. Miller, a Mariemont resident who died in 1971.
