Columbus Public Library is now on YouTube!
We are excited to announce that the Columbus Public Library now has its own YouTube channel! Find us on YouTube by searching for Columbus Public Library WI. Then follow us
by liking and subscribing to our page. You can also choose to get a notification when a new video is posted.
We will post weekly programing videos aimed toward ages 5 and up. Storytimes will also be posted weekly but will only be up for a 24 hours due to copyrights.
This is a great alterative for those who do not use other social media sites to still have access to our instructional videos and storytimes. Videos will still be shared on Facebook for those who prefer to watch through that site.
The health and safety of our patrons and staff is of utmost concern to the Columbus Public Library. With that in mind, the Library Board has decided that all library programs will be done virtually for the time being.
Information about upcoming projects can be found on the library’s calendar.
