Library History

The Clermont County Public Library began serving the public in 1955 with a bookmobile and a small office as its first facilities. Since then, the library system has expanded to 10 locations, achieving a goal of the library board to have a branch within 15 minutes drive time of all Clermont County residents. The library is governed by a seven-member Board of Trustees appointed by the Clermont County commissioners and the judges of the Clermont County Court of Common Pleas. The board, in turn, hires the library director who implements policies and oversees operations.

Clermont County Public Library receives its revenue from three main sources. The state legislature provides the majority of the funding from its biennial budget, while additional money comes from local property taxes. The library passed a .9 -mill operating levy in 2008. Library fines and fees provide the smallest portion. The library also receives donations periodically.
