We completed Phase I of our aspirational building program to bring 21st century libraries to 10 communities. We’re now thrilled to be embarking on Phase II: new branches for Karl Road, Gahanna and Reynoldsburg, as well as a major renovation of our Hilltop Branch. These buildings were selected based on their age, use and the growing needs of the communities they serve.
