Help Us Protect Public Library Funding in Ohio
Ohioans love their libraries. Nearly four out of five residents is a registered library card holder—that’s more than 8.7 million Ohioans! 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 receives 1.7% of the state’s General Revenue Fund. State funding for Ohio’s public libraries will be automatically cut again on July 1, 2017 unless action is taken to protect the PLF.
