About the current Columbus Public Library

The Columbus Public Library opened January 2005 with much fanfare. Designed by world renown architectural firm Robert A. M. Stern, Associates, the two and a half story building is 100,000 square feet in size. The first floor is dedicated to children's and teens services, best selling books and new releases, and meeting rooms. On the first floor are the Aflac Children's Room and the Aflac Children's Story Room.

The second floor houses the adult circulation materials, the Genealogy and Local History Department and the W. C. Bradley Memorial Reading Room (Reference Department). [Website]
