Library to spotlight its business resources in May

More than books, libraries are spaces to do business

COLUMBUS—Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML) is kicking off a promotional campaign to draw awareness to its business resources at all 23 locations. These include free Wi-Fi and reservable computers, meeting rooms and workspaces. Additionally, customers can stop in to copy, print, scan and fax.

Last year, CML also introduced its Business and Nonprofit Resource Center at Main Library: a dedicated workspace on the third floor for businesses and nonprofit organizations. Specialized staff and representatives from partner organizations offer free classes, expert help and access to research databases.

“Public libraries are so much more than books,” said CML CEO Patrick Losinski. “We want to work for our customers and ensure they have the tools they need to reach their full potential.”

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.
