Who We Are


The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County Foundation was incorporated in 2004 as a non-profit, tax-exempt 501 (c)(3) organization.  Contributions to The Library Foundation help strengthen collections, expand programs, and enhance services.  A strong public library system is the foundation upon which a community can preserve the past, empower lives today, and build for the future. 

The Library Foundation supports the work of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County.  The system is comprised of 41 locations and is the second busiest library in the United States.
