Meet our Library

The Cincinnati & Hamilton County Public Library is one of the premier public library systems in the United States. For more than 150 years, it has been an essential public resource contributing to millions of personal success stories and to the success of our community. Our legacy of innovative programs, embracing technology and reaching beyond our walls to serve our community has been a glowing example of excellence, admired by other communities across the nation. With demand for the Library’s services higher than any time in 150 years, it’s clear that our Library is more valuable and relevant to the children, teens, and families of Greater Cincinnati than ever before.
