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 Branch and transformed Hilltop Branch are under construction, and work is underway on our new Gahanna and Reynoldsburg branches following a delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
