News and Announcements

Published on Fri, 03/21/2014 - 9:14am

You may have heard on a local newscast that we are joining the “CML (Columbus Metropolitan Library) group.” This is incorrect. We are joining the Central Library Consortium (CLC), which is a network of Central Ohio independent library systems with cooperative lending agreements. Each library still maintains its own policies and develops its own collection. Patrons of CLC-member libraries get easy access to the combined collections of these 14 independent systems, and the convenience of being able to return items to any library. You must still use your UAPL card because patron information is not shared among the library systems.
