COLUMBUS—The judges of the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas have appointed Mike Duffy, president, hospital solutions and global supply chain for Cardinal Health, to the Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML) Board of Trustees. He will fulfill a vacant seven-year term commencing Nov. 17, 2015 and ending Dec. 31, 2021.
Duffy joined Cardinal Health in 2006 after serving as vice president, global value chain at the Gillette Company (later Procter & Gamble).
Duffy has been a member of the Columbus Metropolitan Library Foundation Board since 2014.
CML’s seven-member Board of Trustees is responsible for guiding major decisions about library strategies and operations. This includes everything from capital projects to the customer code ofconduct.
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 Club 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 readiness and employment resources.
CML was named a 2011 National Medal Winner by the Institute for Museum and Library Services for work in community service, the highest honor for libraries and museums. Columbus Metropolitan Library has been rated a 5-Star Library by Library Journal for seven of the eight years the magazine has published its industry ratings.
