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.
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.
