Upcoming Program & Event Highlights

  • Winter Birds

    On Saturday, January 31 at 10:30 a.m. at the Main Library, preschoolers can enjoy stories, activities and a craft to celebrate our feathered friends — the birds we see in winter. 

  • Live at the Library: The Ramshacklers

    Our Live at the Library concert series continues on Thursday, January 29 at 7 p.m. with a performance by The Ramshacklers. Their music draws from R&B, soul and American rock and has made these bands staples of the Columbus music scene. If you love the blues and soul music of the 60's and 70's, you won't want to miss this show.

  • Movies by the Coen Brothers: Barton Fink

    Steve Hunt will present and lead a discussion of The Coen Brothers' Barton Fink on Sunday, January 25 at 2 p.m. Set in 1941, it stars John Turturro as a New York playwright who's enticed to go to Hollywood to write for the movies, and soon discovers the harsh truth of tinseltown.
