COLUMBUS—At its meeting yesterday, the Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML) Board of Trustees has re-elected for 2016:
- Roger Sugarman as board president
- Michael Lawson as board vice president
- Tim Frommeyer as board secretary
CML’s seven-member Board of Trustees is responsible for guiding major decisions about library strategies and operations. This includes everything from capital projects to the customer code of conduct.
Columbus Metropolitan Library has served the people of Franklin County, Ohio since 1873. With its Main Library and 22 branches, CML is well known for signature services and programs like Homework Help Centers, Reading Buddies, Summer Reading Club and Ready for Kindergarten. The library’s Strategic Plan supports the vision of “a thriving community where wisdom prevails,” which positions CML to respond to areas of urgent need: kids unprepared for kindergarten, third grade reading proficiency, high school graduation, college readiness and employment resources.
CML was named a 2011 National Medal Winner by the Institute for Museum and Library Services for work in community service, the highest honor for libraries and museums. Columbus Metropolitan Library has been rated a 5-Star Library by Library Journal for seven of the eight years the magazine has published its industry ratings.
