The Price Hill Branch will temporarily relocate to the Price Hill Recreation Center beginning Monday, July 16 through Aug. 31. The Library made the difficult decision to temporarily close the Price Hill Branch on July 3 due to significant damage to the ceiling. The temporary location will be staffed by Library employees during all Recreation Center open hours, Monday–Friday, 7 a.m.–9 p.m. It will be closed on Saturdays. Facility and maintenance workers continue to assess the damage and there is no timeline yet for repairs. Additional details about the closure are available here.


The Price Hill Branch is located on the corner of Purcell and Warsaw Avenue. A parking lot is available behind the building. The branch is served by Metro routes 32 and 33.

Branch History

The Price Hill Branch, which opened in 1909, is one of the nine area libraries in Hamilton County built with funds provided by the Andrew Carnegie Foundation. Notable features of the French Renaissance style brick and limestone building include a roof with tin deck and slate slopes, fleur-de-lis grid over the doors, bird head door handles, and cherry wood shelves.
