According to Columbus Metropolitan Library they will also close all locations starting 6 pm Friday March 13th.
“This decision was not made lightly,” said CML CEO Patrick Losinski. “The scientific evidence that early social distancing can help stop the spread of the coronavirus is a compelling factor in taking this precautionary step on behalf of our customers, staff and the community during this pandemic. In response to Gov. Mike DeWine’s orders closing all K-12 schools and prohibiting mass gatherings, we have determined that we will close.”
CML will continue to follow guidelines provided by city, county and state health officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
While CML locations will be closed for this extended period of time, digital library resources are available at columbuslibrary.org, including eBooks, eAudiobooks, magazines, movies and music, plus research and learning tools.
