“Since 1907, the inscription above our stately Main Library has proclaimed a core value: “Open to All.” The newly renovated library, with its broad vistas, open floor plan and walls of windows is indeed open to all and intended to bring people together. After a 16 month long $35 million dollar renovation, the grand opening ceremony took place on June 25. The new light filled Grand Atrium still features the beloved Aminah Robinson mural reinstalled on the main staircase. Glass is used liberally to connect library visitors to the activity inside the library and to offer beautiful vistas of the Columbus downtown skyline, Discovery District and green space in Topiary Park.” – Friends of the Library web site
