Ohio also has the highest library use per capita in the United States. Public libraries play an essential role in the community, improve the quality of life and give everyone a chance to succeed. Ohio’s public libraries are funded through the Public Library Fund which currently receives 1.68% of the state’s General Revenue Fund.
