Ohio Budget Cuts

I have just heard Governor Strickland's proposed budget cuts, and their unfathomable impact on Ohio libraries, including those in Mahoning County.

Please look at the news release link at the bottom left of the page for further explanation.

Please pass on this information.

  1. The funding cut is a bit scary. Hopefully it will not go through. Libraries are more than materials and books and many legislators fail to see this clearly.
    It is also a wake-up call since many states have much smaller funds for libraries. This would mean that OH library staff would have to find even more creative uses of smaller funds.
