The Cincinnati Hamilton County Public Library is planning groundbreakings later this month at three of its branches. Clifton, Reading and St. Bernard will all get new or renovated libraries in 2015.
The three branches will have expanded collections, computer labs, meeting and program rooms and individual study rooms. All were designed for energy efficiency, and LEED certification is being pursued for both Reading and St. Bernard.
