Located in the former T.J. Maxx storefront, this "Next Generation Library" from the Cincinnati & Hamilton County Public Library opens to the public at 10 a.m. on Dec. 10.
Located just a bit down from the old branch location, this revamped space spans 25,000 square feet and is now accessible for wheelchairs, walkers and strollers. It also has two public meeting rooms, seven study rooms and a "quiet area."
“I can’t wait to welcome you to this lovely new space where we’ll all be able to do more, together,” said Deer Park Branch Manager Natalie Fields in a release. “You’ll find many more books, movies, and computers as well as spaces to interact with your neighbors or work quietly on your own or with a small group. The Deer Park staff and I look forward to showing you around.”
Cincinnati & Hamilton County Public Library Director Paula Brehm-Heeger says the project cost around $5 million.
The library's Next Generation plan aims to upgrade all of its 41 branches over 10 years. Renovations have begun at the main branch downtown, and will include updating the plazas in front of the North and South buildings and the atrium.
Deer Park branch is located at 4020 E. Galbraith Road, Deer Park.
