The Ivy Tech Library will be hosting an event next week called Columbus Present that will take a look at where we are as a city.

This comes after their success with a Columbus Past event last fall. Bethany Messersmith, the Ivy Tech library director, says that the panel includes Mayor Jim LIenhoop, LaTosha Lafferty and Rick Scalf with Black Lives Matter, Columbus Municipal Airport Director Brian Payne and Kathy Oren from the Community Education Coalition.

Messersmith explains that the series is meant to raise awareness of the college and of the university library at the Columbus Learning Center..

This event will be Thursday January 25th from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Columbus Learning Center. It is being sponsored by Phi Theta Kappa and the University Library. Dessert will follow.
