Library reopens Southeast Branch

Branch had closed for repairs due to water damage

COLUMBUS—After a month-long closure, Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML) has reopened its Southeast Branch (3980 S. Hamilton Rd). The branch was closed for repairs after frozen pipes burst in late December.

The branch is back to full operations and normal hours starting today. In addition to the branch’s many services, customers can now check out books, reserve meeting rooms and use the branch’s School Help Center

Branch hours are as follows:

Monday – Thursday: 9 a.m.-9 p.m.
Friday – Saturday: 9 a.m.-6 p.m.
Sunday: 1-5 p.m.

The Linden Branch, which also experienced some water damage late last year, has also reopened for regular hours.

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 School Help, Reading Buddies, Summer Reading Challenge 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 and career readiness and employment resources.
