Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML) was formed March 4, 1872 and the Public Library and Reading Room opened in 1873 at the New City Hall. CML has since expanded to 22 branches, a Main Library and an Operations Center with more than 2 million items in its collection. CML’s purpose is to “inspire reading, share resources and connect people” and their vision is “a thriving community where wisdom prevails.”
