Monthly Community Resource Fairs at Cincinnati Public Library
Free community resources fairs are held at the North Plaza of the downtown Main Library on the final Thursday of each month. These resource fairs offer individual assistance to get connected with area services, including access to free primary care health services and medicaid navigation, free legal aid, and discount Internet services, and many more.
Local community resource fairs play a vital role in providing low-income individuals and families with access to valuable resources and services they may not otherwise be aware of or have access to. These fairs bring together various organizations, agencies, and community stakeholders under one roof, making it easier for low-income individuals and families to learn about and access resources such as healthcare, education, employment opportunities, housing assistance, and more. By attending these resource fairs, low-income individuals and families can connect directly with service providers and experts who can help address their specific needs and challenges, offering them much-needed support and guidance. The information and assistance provided at these fairs can potentially improve the overall well-being and quality of life for low-income individuals and families by helping them navigate through difficult circumstances, access essential services, and find opportunities for growth and self-sufficiency.
Providers at the Cincinnati Downtown Library on the final Thursday each month include the Cincinnati Health Department, UC Health Services, and the Cincinnati Health Network, as well as the Urban League of Southwest Ohio, the Ohio Justice & Policy Center, the Center for Employment Training (Brighton Center), Cincy Red Bike, and more.
