New Building Project Survey

We recently asked you to consider potential additional features to the library in this building project, specifically two spaces that would be run by nonprofit organizations. Those survey responses were used to create Building Options A and B to determine the size & scope of project components.

Please select your choice for the building’s components at to help design the best project for our community. This survey will close January 13, 2020.


Columbus Public Library, with the help of a bookmobile, provides library services to Platte County, Nebraska residents. The library provides both print and electronic resources, and both in-person and online services. In addition to traditional library offerings, patrons have access to public access computers, copy machines, tablets, printers, fax service, meeting rooms, Wi-Fi, a Makerspace, outreach, and quality programming for patrons of all ages. Additionally, the library donates space to the Columbus Art Gallery. The library truly does connect people and ideas.
