Trustee Dinners

Each spring, the Ohio Library Council hosts dinner meetings around the state for public library trustees and administrators. These events discuss the challenges and opportunities ahead for Ohio’s public libraries and provide a venue for library trustees and administrators to share information and exchange ideas with their counterparts throughout the region.

This year, the Trustee Dinners will focus on how library trustees and administrators can be effective advocates, particularly as the state legislature focuses its attention on the FY24-25 state budget.
