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). To prepare library directors, fiscal officers and trustees to work with the members of the new General Assembly, the OLC will be hosting a free webinar on Mon., Feb. 8 from 2-3:30 p.m.
During the webinar, Jay Smith, OLC’s Director of Government and Legal Services, will provide an update on the state budget, the PLF, and what it means for public libraries. He’ll also cover effective advocacy tools and techniques for developing relationships with legislators as well as how we will continue our work with the Ohio House and Ohio Senate over the next several months. If you are unable to attend the live presentation, the webinar will be recorded and posted on the OLC website.
