Getting Ready to Move!

Our new Hilliard Branch opens on Thursday, June 21. So at 9 p.m. on Wednesday, June 6, we’ll close the current Hilliard Branch at 4772 Cemetery Rd. as we prepare to move to our new home at 4500 Hickory Chase Way. While the branch will be closed to the public, the drive-up book return will remain open. Visit our 22 other locations for library services.

Mark your calendar and join us rain or shine for a brief outdoor ceremony that ends with a ribbon-cutting. Then, experience your new branch and join in family fun activities and entertainment.
