Mission Statement

The purpose of Columbus Metropolitan Library is to: Inspire reading Share resources and Connect people.

Description

Open and available to all, we are a haven, a meeting space, a destination for learning; providing access to information and technology for families of all socio-economic levels.

If you value enriching, informing, educating and entertaining those around you and want our libraries to continue making an impact in our communities, consider a gift of time or money to Columbus Metropolitan Library or your local library.

One of the nation's premier public libraries, our 23 locations lead the way in providing information resources to Central Ohio. In 2016 Columbus Metropolitan Library loaned 16.1 million items with another 1.6 million downloaded books, audiobooks, movies and music files to 5.3 million visitors and 9 million web visits, making the library available to all 24/7.

Proof of our dedication to serving children lies in our extensive Young Minds initiative, which includes one of the largest Summer Reading Club in the country.

The Columbus Metropolitan Library is a five-star entity. Where else can you find millions of reading, researching, and listening materials that are free for you to check and out and keep for a month? The Homework Help Centers are growing and growing, and the Summer Reading Club is a fantastic opportunity for young minds to read and grow in their love for learning about the world around them. I love the library! What is the point of going to a bookstore when you have the opportunity to have so many more options in the way of books, movies cds, and much much more? I am very thankful that I have gotten to work as a volunteer at the library and learn how it really functions, how it really serves the public, both from the public viewpoint and behind the scenes.
