Columbus Metropolitan Library's Carnegie Author Series: Hanif Abdurraqib

While Columbus Metropolitan Library hopes to hold events in-person at the Main Library by June, all events could change to virtual events depending on public health needs.

All programs are free and open to all. If the program is held virtually, CML will share registration and login details in the weeks prior. If the program is held in person, free tickets will become available in the weeks prior. Parking is free in Main Library’s garage.
