art unbound: an invitational
Friends of the Columbus Metropolitan Library challenged 18 talented local artists to take books no longer in the library's collection (and bound for recycling) and breathe new life into them. The result? A fascinating art exhibit that explores recycling, subtraction and the importance of the written word in contemporary society.

Join us on Thursday, November 21 in the Carnegie Gallery at Main Library for art unbound: an invitational Reception and Silent Auction. Enjoy hors d'oeuvres, wine and beer, meet the artists and explore the inspiration behind their artwork. Tickets are $50 and include a complimentary one-year Friend-level membership for new members.

More than 20 art pieces will be auctioned. Proceeds from the sale of artwork will be split 50/50 between the artist and Friends of the Library. The Friends of the Library proceeds will support new branches in Driving Park and Whitehall.

Friends of the Columbus Metropolitan Library

The Friends of the Library is a group – made up of every day customers and advocates just like you – that is passionate about our library.

Building awareness and resources to champion the mission of Columbus Metropolitan Library.

We provide reach and resources beyond what the library can do on its own. We work closely with library leadership and staff in every branch to determine where our support can make a difference. That’s why the Friends are proud to fund critical programs such as Summer Reading Club, Homework Help Centers and Teen Read Week that are major touchstones of the library experience. We also support library levy campaigns, which provide public funding for the library.
