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 West Fork Branch was known as the branch between two cornfields, when it was built on part of the farm belonging to Mrs. Rosie Beyer of Green Township. It served as a rural library for the northwestern part of the county. West Fork Branch opened on March 1, 1971, and has enjoyed many years of community growth. It was renamed the Monfort Heights Branch Library in January 2001 to better reflect the community it serves.
