Columbus Metropolitan Library

Foundation

Tax dollars enable the very existence of the library, but philanthropic support from donors like you, given through the Columbus Metropolitan Library Foundation (CMLF), allows the library to take its programs and services even further; to pivot, change and innovate to really be there in the way that our community needs us. Thanks to your giving, we can truly be a thriving community where wisdom prevails.

Together with you, CMLF supports the library’s immediate needs and long-range goals through generous private donations, ensuring the library’s collection, programs and services will be available for generations of learners to come.

OUR MISSION

The Columbus Metropolitan Library Foundation provides financial support for the library’s greatest needs and highest priorities through generous gifts from donors like you.

Every day, CML provides vital services to the central Ohio community, from sparking conversations about social justice to helping our youngest readers build a foundation for lifelong learning. Your support ensures CML is able to offer programs and services free to all.
