Our Goal

We have embarked on an ambitious plan to build a new Dublin Branch with double the space of the existing building. The branch will allow for more access to the unique programming, resources and dedicated staff that the community enjoys today. Through this renewed library, we will create a space where the Dublin community will dream, innovate, learn, share, connect and grow.

The expected total cost of the Dublin project is $21.1 million. Columbus Metropolitan Library has $18.3 million in funds for the project. The Columbus Metropolitan Library Foundation is undertaking private fundraising to help raise the additional $2.8 million needed to fund the project. We are proud to partner with Dublin Community Foundation to raise these funds to support the new Dublin Branch. 100% of donations made to the Dublin Branch Capital Campaign will be used to benefit the Dublin community.

As of June 2019, $2,500,000 has already been secured from private philanthropy. This funding will help ensure the new Dublin Branch fully meets the needs of the Dublin community.

How You Can Help

This world-class library is coming to life thanks to a growing roster of corporations, foundations and individuals that have made generous contributions to support our efforts.

We hope you will consider making a gift to help us cross the finish line of Columbus Metropolitan Library Foundation’s Dublin Branch Campaign.

What we hope to achieve

With community support, we will create an inspirational space that prepares kids for kindergarten, cultivates a passion for reading in the young, empowers discovery and creativity in our teens, provides the books and resources for adults trying to improve their lives, ensures access to technology to those without, and so much more.
