Send a letter or note of congratulations to your newly-elected members of the Ohio General Assembly. It can be a handwritten note (more personable) or on official library letterhead (more formal). The OLC has provided a very basic sample that is intended to be personalized with the following information:
- Note if the legislator was re-elected or will be a freshman legislator in January.
- Note if the Rep. or Sen.-elect has visited your library recently. If he/she has NOT visited your library in the past two months, please be sure to invite them in for a visit.
- Remind them that the library has meeting room space and is available for use when they hold office hours in the district.
- Provide your contact information and request that they contact you directly for any information or to reserve a meeting room.
