Who We Are · Foundation Directors


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.  Click on the links below for compelling comments from our Directors and Executive Director on why they value the Library
