New Library Director, Lindsey Ganz

My name is Lindsey Ganz and I am honored to serve the Columbus community as the new library director. The Columbus Public Library is a place that feels like a second home to me as I grew up in this area. I am pleased to return to my hometown and look forward to leading the library into the future. This is a wonderful community with a talented library staff who I am excited to work with. I recently served as the library director of the Poynette Area Public Library for the past five years and previous to that was a special education teacher for eight years.

Meet and Greet: Wednesday, November 6: 4-7pm at the Library Annex. Join me for refreshments and conversation.

Author Visit: Hady Diallo

Local author Hady Diallo will be at the Library Annex on Tuesday, November 5 from 6:30-8pm to discuss his book Nieggri in Moscow: My Life as a Foreign Student in USSR. In his first book, Mr. Diallo takes the reader through his incredible six-year journey to the former Soviet Union at the height of the cold war. Thierno H. Diallo has a Master's degree in Agronomy from the State Agriculture Institute of Kishinev, Moldavia, one of the fifteen republics of the former Soviet Union. While facing blatant racism, food shortages, and high crimes, hewitnessed the rise and fall of Mr. Gorbachev and his perestroika, the tumbling down of the Berlin wall and the demise of the Soviet Union itself.  He currently lives in Sun Prairie with his wife and two sons.  All are welcome

No More Overdue Fines at Columbus Public Library!

Your Columbus Public Library is making it easier than ever to borrow library materials. As of June 1, 2019, they are no longer charging overdue fines for any materials checked out at the library. While this has been the policy for items from the children’s library, for teachers, and for senior citizens, this no-fine approach now extends to all items checked out at the library, for people of all ages.

There is a new book club in town!

The Columbus Public Library’s new Columbus/Fall River Senior Book Club features audio books and large-print books and will meet on two different days per month at two different locations. The Larson House Platinum at 550 River Road in Columbus will host on the first Wednesday of each month. The second group will meet at The Meadows at 101 Hometown Avenue in Fall River on the second Wednesday of each month.
