The Governor’s State Budget proposal for FY 18-19 (HB 49) is currently being debated at the Statehouse and it proposes cuts in state funding for Ohio’s public libraries! Now is the time for your voice to be heard!
Legislative Day is your day at the Statehouse. It’s an opportunity for you to come to Columbus, meet with your legislators, advocate on behalf of Ohio’s public libraries, share the essential work we are doing and how we are transforming our communities! It’s important to get the message out on the vital role we play and to put a local face on the impact Ohio’s public libraries have.
New This Year – The 2017 Legislative Day will include a luncheon and awards ceremony with legislators in the Statehouse Atrium. All of the scheduled events will be inside the Statehouse. See agenda below.
