Libraries Everywhere surprises and delights citizens at events and locations throughout Central Ohio. Permanent little free libraries are placed in areas of need and elevate the neighborhood’s rich cultural heritage. Moby, our mobile little library, captivates guests at special events and festivals. Art and library installations bring wonder and excitement to children and adults alike. And school literacy initiatives are enhanced through our partnerships.
#CbusIsLit promotes events in Central Ohio and will expand to include the celebration of literary creators through dynamic murals.
