Not in your packet

If you are a delegate to the 99th convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and you are reading this blog, you are our kind of conventioneer. You will have noticed that nowhere in the 12,000 packets of information handed out to the 12,000 delegates at your convention is there anything addressing the needs of people who like to seek out the odd membership Library when visiting an unfamiliar city. That is because the people at the Convention and Visitors Bureau cannot themselves imagine anyone wanting to visit a Library. But, again, if you have made it this far, you are well enough read to see the point in stopping into a vast, cool, quiet, book and art filled sanctuary some eleven stories above the noise of the streets.

Don’t be put off by our name or the fact that this is a membership library. We’re delighted to show the place off to visitors whenever they drop in. Which they do. Maybe even more than Cincinnatians do.

Look for the historic marker across from USBank in the 400 block of Walnut Street. The Library is open from 9-5:30 weekdays and 10 -3 Saturday. The horse carts come right to our front door. Or you can walk from the Duke Energy Center. It’ll take you ten minutes.
