New Friday hours available this year

As thousands of central Ohio children and teens return to school this month, the Columbus Metropolitan Library's Homework Help Centers will be staffed with specialists and volunteers ready to lend a hand. Starting today, K-12 students will have a free and safe place to get help with their homework at each of the library system's 21 locations.

Students have everything they need to finish their homework, including computers, printers, on-site school supplies, a collection of resource books and access to our entire print and digital catalog. All they need is their library card to sign in.

New this year: Friday hours will be available at all locations, but CML is discontinuing Homework Help Center service on Sunday. See below for specific hours at each library location. Service hours reflect differences in school-dismissal times among the 10 districts CML serves (Canal Winchester Local, Columbus City, Dublin City, Gahanna-Jefferson Public, Groveport Madison Local, Hamilton Local, Hilliard City, New Albany-Plain Local, Reynoldsburg City and Whitehall City).
