Author Bio

Rita Fuller-Yates is an acclaimed author and historian from Columbus, Ohio.  Fuller-Yates obtained her Bachelor's degree in History from Ohio University and Master's degree from Savannah College of Art & Design. 

Fuller-Yates grew up on the Near East side of Columbus and graduated from East High School. Early on in her life she developed her love for family and tradition. This prompted her to start hosting workshops and classes to help others with the art of hosting and entertainment at home. She authored her first book “Life, Camera, Action - A guide to great hosting and entertainment” in 2016. 

In 2017, she accepted a position with The Columbus College of Art and Design as an Art History Professor and later that year became the resident Lifestyle Expert for WSYX 6, FOX 28, and WBNS10TV Columbus local news affiliates.

in 2018, she made a shift to focus more of her attention on African American history within the various communities of Columbus, Ohio. She hosts a weekly interactive TV show called “History In da Streetz”, where she takes her viewers on a journey to discover amazing African American history right in their backyard. Fuller-Yates also started the Facebook group, Columbus Black History, which has more than 17,000 members, and the site, 20Twenty200 Project  which has a video archive of more than 60 interviews with Black leaders in Columbus. 

Her mission to share historical facts and interesting topics with the community, allows for her to engage firsthand with young people to make sure that they understand their history and to always stay mindful of Traditions and family values. Rita Fuller-Yates sits on the trustees board of the Columbus Landmarks Foundation as well as the Columbus Historical Society.

About the branch

Bexley Public Library was founded in 1924 and first housed in Bexley High School, now Montrose Elementary School. The present building opened in 1929 and was designed by architects O.C. Miller and R.R. Reeves who drew upon French and Italian architecture from the 17th century for the design.

The library is located at 2411 East Main Street, at the intersection of East Main Street and Cassady Avenue. Parking is available in our parking lot on Euclaire Avenue and in front of the library on Main Street. Main Street is a No Parking Tow Zone from 4:00-6:00 p.m. weekdays.
