COLUMBUS—Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML) has hired Tiffani Carter as manager of its Livingston Branch. She begins her new role today, March 25.
Carter previously served as manager of the West Indianapolis Branch of the Indianapolis Public Library, where she oversaw branch operations and served as outreach liaison to area schools, community groups and organizational boards, among other duties.
“Tiffani’s resume really impressed us,” said CML Chief Customer Experience Officer Alison Circle. “With her background in education and librarianship, we know she’ll bring an immense passion for community service to our Livingston Branch.”
The previous manager of the Livingston Branch, Nate Oliver, served on an interim basis while also managing operations at CML’s Gahanna Branch. With Carter’s hiring, Oliver will return his focus to Gahanna full time.
