The Ohio House of Representatives will soon begin working on the biennial state budget following its introduction by the administration. This will be an extremely important time as the OLC and its member libraries continue their advocacy efforts to restore state funding for public libraries through the Public Library Fund (PLF). The OLC hosted a webinar to help prepare library directors, fiscal officers and trustees to work with the members of the new General Assembly.
