On Monday, February 20, patrons are invited to walk through the doors of the brand new Miamisburg Branch Library, located at 545 E. Linden Avenue, for the first time. A Grand Opening Celebration, 1:00-4:00 p.m., gives the community a chance to see the new Library that has been under construction since March, 2016.

  • Flexible Community Room, accessible before and after Library hours
  • Two 4-person Quads, two 6-person Group Study Rooms and a 10-person Conference Room
  • A Quiet Reading Room with cozy fireplace
  • In-Library laptop and Macintosh lending
  • Numerous public computers with industrial-grade WiFi
  • Four original art installations
  • An outdoor patio
  • Treasured local artifacts and historical collection
  • Nearly double the space of the current Miamisburg Branch
