    Hi, I’m Summer Sherman, manager of the South High Branch. As a lifelong resident of Columbus, I’m committed to making a difference in our community. I love reading fiction of all kinds, from classics to fantasy to youth literature. A longtime favorite is My Antonia by Willa Cather.

    Stop by – I'd love to show you what we offer at South High.
