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.
We are currently experiencing issues with our phone system. We appreciate your patience while we work to resolve them. If you are trying to reach our Main Library but cannot get through, please call one of our branches for assistance.
