Protect the PLF Tools for Libraries

Library administrators and trustees are an integral part of the OLC’s grassroots advocacy efforts. Your voice helps determine the success or failure of your professional organization’s government relations efforts. As an advocate, you also play a key role in educating our communities about why libraries are essential. Use these tools to become a powerful advocate for Ohio’s public libraries.
