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.

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.

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.
