We are excited to participate for the first time in Columbus, Ohio’s Community Festival! ComFest is a“a free, non-corporate, yearly celebration of Columbus, Ohio’s community organizations, performers, artists and volunteers.” Meet Cbus Libraries’ founders, Andrea Dixon and Bryan Loar, and visit the Eco Library June 23-25 at Goodale Park in Columbus, Ohio.
The Eco Library is a little free library that promotes environmentalism and sustainability. The library illustrates a tale of two cities, one sustainable and the other not. The sustainable city features a green roof, natural moss exterior and a rain collection system. On the reverse, the Eco Library unites local street art, a bench encouraging discussion and space for the community to create their own art.
Our Eco Library aligns with ComFest’s purpose by
- Being a testament to collaboration for the collective good
- Promoting basic necessities like clean air, water and soil as well as access to high-quality books
- Advancing reading and libraries while giving citizens the necessary resources to conduct their lives with environmental harmony
- Informing participants that our actions have direct consequences and begin changing behaviors

We are looking for a few good volunteers! Do you have interest in libraries, building community, and/or the environment? Sign up to be an Eco Library Ambassador! Ambassadors will welcome festival goers, describe the library’s purpose, and promote interaction with the library through books and art. Questions about volunteering may be directed to bryan [at] cbuslibraries [dot] com.
