On April Fool's Day, April 1, 2023, the Columbus Metropolitan Library tweeted this photo and joked that they would be setting up a library on a boat.

The Columbus Metropolitan Library is not building a library on a boat to swim up and down the Scioto River, no matter what it said on social media Saturday.

Several organizations in the Columbus area made shocking announcements on this April Fool’s joke that were clearly intended as jokes.
