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.

The former Miamisburg Branch building has been closed since January 28 for the move. Returns will to be accepted at the old Library through February 20.

The Miamisburg Branch is the eighth completed project in the Libraries for a Smarter Future system-wide improvement plan, made possible by Montgomery County voters in 2012. The new Library is 15,000 square feet, at a cost of $6.5 million.

Features of the new Library include:

  • 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
