Reinvesting in Our Communities

We completed Phase I of our aspirational building program to bring 21st century libraries to 10 communities. Check out this booklet we created to celebrate the journey.

Now we’ve embarked upon Phase II: Our new Karl Road and Hilltop branches are open, and our new Gahanna Branch is under construction. Plus, planning is underway for a new Reynoldsburg Branch.

We’re also transforming the Park Plaza at Main Library to better serve you!

Main Library's Kaufman Plaza

Park Plaza at Main Library has a whole new look and a whole new name: Kaufman Plaza! 

Thanks to a generous gift from Encova Insurance, the plaza has been renamed Kaufman Plaza, in honor of former Encova CEO, David Kaufman.
