Governor Strickland’s proposed budget cuts will reduce library funding by 50 percent. This severe cut would devastate our Mahoning County library system, as well as libraries throughout Ohio.
Libraries will be forced to close.
Please consider calling or emailing the Governor and your legislators to urge them to keep library funding strong. Let them know libraries are essential!
Use the information below or email them using our handy web form at http://www.libraryvisit.org/budget.cfm
The budget will be decided by June 30. Immediate action is required. Names, phone numbers and email addresses are listed below. Also, you can visit our website, libraryvisit.org, for a one-click form to email legislators.
Thank you for your support.
