Save my library!

Ohio's Governor, Ted Strickland, wants to eliminate more than $200 million from the Public Library Fund over the next two years. These funding cuts would drastically reduce services and access at a time when Ohio's public libraries are experiencing unprecedented increases in usage of services like Internet access, children's summer reading programs and more. The Governor's proposal cuts library funding by 50% beginning July 1st, meaning the time for action is NOW!

If you want to help save Ohio's libraries, please contact our legislators. The Columbus Metropolitan Library has made it easy to do so at http://columbuslibrary.org/. If you want to take a more direct route, call Governor Strickland's office at 614-466-3555.

li-berries. So important!
