The Main Library Is Undergoing An Epic Outdoor Renovation

The East Plaza at the Main Library is underway.

The new renovation will transform the east side of the library into an open and inviting community centerpiece.

The plaza will offer a better connection to the Topiary Park, flexible space for library programs and community events, shaded seating, and more. The Main Library underwent a major transformation back in 2016.

A large part of that project was the purchase of the space (a former parking lot) just east of the Library. The southern side of the plaza was designed as an outdoor reading space. The transformed space will open to all on Friday, July 15 with a special event.

The Main Library will remain open during construction, including the east entrance. For more info about Columbus Metropolitan Library, please visit
