I love working at Columbus Metropolitan Library because of the flexibility. I go to college full time, so having a job that works with my school schedule is important. One of the pluses of working at CML is the opportunity to work on important committees. My work with the Diversity and Inclusion Committee makes me feel like a part of the change.
Benjamin Reid

Public Services Director

While working for Columbus Metropolitan Library, I’ve been impressed by the strong culture that supports me as a person as well as an employee. CML leadership promotes a people-first attitude. My personal and professional growth has been highlighted by multiple opportunities to serve in stretch roles, where I’ve felt valued by my peers and supervisors, and an integral part in the library’s important work.

Information Services Specialist, Reynoldsburg Branch

I love the work that I do! Every day, I get to make a difference in someone's life. I can help a family apply for food assistance the same day I give a teenager an affirming book on their gender identity. I can speak Spanish to a New American who has not been able to communicate with others. I have professional support and supportive friendships with colleagues. And, I have the opportunity to affect the library’s policies as part of the Racial Equity Steering Committee.
Connie Kuns

Lean Manager, Capital Planning & Project Management

My number one goal is to work for an organization whose purpose is one I believe in. The library is that place. In my nearly three-decade career here, I have worked and grown through various positions, gained so much knowledge and skills, and always with a group of passionate, committed colleagues around me. It is a great feeling to know your community is a better place for what you do.

We’re driven by our strategic plan and customer-centric philosophy to strive to make a positive impact in the lives of our customers.
