Meeting Monday on closing Batavia Library

The Clermont County Library may close the Batavia Branch.

On Monday the Clermont County Public Library Board of Trustees will discuss a committee recommendation to move services from Batavia to the Owensville Branch Library.

The meeting will be at 5:30 p.m. Mon., Oct. 16, at the union Township Branch Library, 4450 Glen Este-Withamsville Road, in Eastgate.

The library system has 10 locations. A committee study has determined that the Batavia facility, named the Doris Wood Branch Library in honor of the library system’s first director, has lower use than other branches. The building is the oldest in the system, lacks parking and visibility, and has not seen improvements in recent years.
