The weather is getting warmer and like most of us, it’s a time to get out of the house and enjoy the outdoors! For some of us, we don’t like being outside for festivals and sports, maybe you want to do indoor events with your family. Well if you haven’t gotten a Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML) then now is the time!

CML and the Gateway Film Center have come together to present From Book To Film this summer.  As stated on NBC4i.com, any CML cardholder can see a series of films that were inspired by books free of charge.
