Requests for Qualifications, Bids, and Proposals

The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County serves as the only public library system for county citizens. With 494,936 registered cardholders and 41 locations throughout the county, the Library works to fulfill its mission to connect people with the world of ideas and information in meaningful ways. The demographics of the Library’s service area are similar to those of Hamilton County’s 800,000 residents. The Library recently passed an additional 1mill levy for 10 years for operating expenses and capital improvements with the intent to improve the facilities.

When the Library has open requests for qualifications, bids and/or proposals, they will be posted to this page. Please direct questions to Molly DeFosse, Chief Finance and Facilities Officer.
