Delaware Library opens new branch at Columbus State

As of this fall, Columbus State Community College staff members and students will have immediate access to more than 2,000 Delaware County District Library books at the campus Learning Commons through a new partnership between DCDL and CSCC.

Students will be able to borrow books already on the shelves or request library materials to be delivered to the school by DCDL Outreach Services. Also, Delaware and Orange library patrons can watch for new iPad-based informational kiosks to help current and prospective CSCC students as part of the collaboration.
