The branch's current location will be open during construction of the new branch.

The Forest Park Branch Library, located in the Facility Master Plan Central North planning zone, is moving to a new location! Construction at the new site, 660 Northland Blvd., began in May 2023. Check out the highlights from the groundbreaking as shared in the Cincinnati Business Courier and FOX19 NOW. Construction is planned to be complete in Summer 2024.

The new building will be a Big Next Generation Library; a 26,440-square-foot facility built from the ground up. The project is planned to have ample parking with over 90 parking spots and the branch library will serve Forest Park, Springdale, and surrounding communities.

The new location was previously an office park in a residential area and is currently owned by the City of Forest Park. The site will be located near the post office as well as several restaurants and businesses. There is public transportation to the new location.

The current library location is planned to be taken over by the City of Forest Park.
