COLUMBUS—Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML) has hired Nate Oliver as manager of its Gahanna Branch. He began his new role within the organization in August.

Oliver has served in many roles at CML since he joined the organization in 1994. He returns to the Gahanna Branch, where he served as circulation manager from 1999 to 2004.

“Nate returns to Gahanna eager to make an impact,” said CML Chief Customer Experience Officer Alison Circle. “He brings a familiarity with the community and a passion for customer service.”

The previous manager of the Gahanna Branch, Mary Campanelli, retired in March after 17 years at CML.
