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 Symmes Township Branch opened for service on February 24, 1991. Special features of the 16,650 square foot building include a circular meeting room and an array of windows affording generous natural lighting. Inscribed around the curved exterior wall of the meeting room are the names of great thinkers - Homer, Sophocles, Aristotle, Euclid, and Virgil. Above the main entrance, the words of Thoreau remind: “Books are the treasured wealth of the world and the fit inheritance of generations and nations.”
