Columbus Metropolitan Library officials will hold a community workshop seeking input for the new Dublin branch library's "signature element" from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 13, in the library, 75 N. High St. in Dublin.

Library officials said they want to incorporate a signature architectural element on the south plaza of the library's proposed design.

They said the goal is to articulate the transition from historic Dublin to its future.

Space for the community input meeting is limited to 50 people. Those who would like to participate must register in advance and can do so online at

Those who cannot attend can submit feedback through a short survey that will be emailed to CML cardholders in the Dublin area later this month, library officials said.

The Dublin branch, built in 1980 and renovated in 1990, has 20,147 square feet. The proposed new branch that will be constructed in its place, will more than double the size to 42,500 square feet.

Library officials said they plan to begin construction on the new Dublin Branch later this year and open in 2019. Turner is the construction manager at risk and NBBJ is the architect.

The Dublin branch would be temporarily relocated to an as yet undisclosed space during construction, library officials said.
