Michael Wilkos, Sr. VP of Community Impact at United Way of Central Ohio, will examine trends in population growth, demographics, housing, and other aspects that affect quality of life around Bexley.

With the arrival of Intel, renewed talks of passenger rail, and accelerated growth of development projects, Central Ohio is rapidly changing. The Next Chapter series is a partnership with the City of Bexley and United Way of Central Ohio that will examine trends in population growth, demographics, job outlook, housing, transportation, education, and other aspects that affect the quality of life around Central Ohio. Learn about how we became the city we are today and how we can best prepare, influence, and embrace the city we are growing into. Michael Wilkos, Sr. Vice President of Community Impact at United Way of Central Ohio, will present the first two programs in this series.

Michael Wilkos is the Senior Vice President of Community Impact at United Way of Central Ohio.  His team develops effective strategies to improve our community and invests in programs provided by funded partners to implement these strategies. Prior to joining United Way, Michael was Director of Community Research at The Columbus Foundation. During his tenure at the foundation, he initiated, led, and managed more than $9 million in competitive grant-making to support holistic community revitalization in Weinland Park, an effort to stabilize and revitalize a mixed-income community near The Ohio State University. Before working at the Columbus Foundation, Michael served as Senior Impact Director and Director of Neighborhood Development at United Way of Central Ohio.  In that position, he managed program allocations supporting neighborhood development strategies. Among many other duties, he also directed volunteer involvement in developing and implementing strategies supporting housing and community safety programs.

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.
