  • Join us Feb. 27 at 6 p.m. to celebrate the Columbus African-American Collection! Columbus has a rich and diverse local history and we're preserving it for future generations. Newspapers, photos, manuscripts, maps and more are digitized to archive the history of African Americans in Columbus. Join us on Feb. 27 as we celebrate the 5th year of the Columbus African-American Collection. The program will include a community panel discussion to celebrate the past, present and future of the Near Eastside,the Eastside Branch and Martin Luther King Branch. We'll also highlight unique and significant items in the collection that represent central Ohio's history and share memories. Bring your materials to be scanned into the collection!
