About the Columbia Branch

The current Columbia Branch was expanded and reopened Aug. 22, 2004. The building is in the Columbia City Landmark District and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It has a reading room, a computer area with a skylight, and large windows throughout the branch with views of the nearby Columbia Park.
