COLUMBUS—Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML) is extending its Main Library hours on Friday, July 19 and Saturday, July 20 due to expected near-triple-digit temperatures. Main Library (96 S. Grant Ave.), which usually closes at 6 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, will remain open until 9 p.m. both nights.

All 23 CML locations are air conditioned and open to all.

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 Homework Help Centers, 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.
