Legislative Day is your day at the Statehouse! It’s an opportunity for you to come to Columbus, meet with your legislators, and advocate on behalf of Ohio’s public libraries! This year, Legislative Day falls within National Library Week, an annual celebration of the life-changing work of libraries. This is the perfect time to show how Ohio’s public libraries lead their communities through transformative services, programs, and expertise they offer.
