Vendor Opportunities

The Ohio Library Council offers a variety of opportunities for vendors to connect with the Ohio library community through the OLC’s 5,000 Individual members and Ohio’s 251 public library systems.

Convention and Expo

Approximately 130 companies and organizations exhibit with the OLC displaying a wide variety of products and services each year at the OLC Convention and Expo. This event attracts managers, decision-makers, and buyers from all of Ohio’s 251 public libraries. The Convention and Expo is held every year.


Event sponsorships provide an excellent opportunity for businesses to connect with those attending OLC events. Past OLC partners have found that underwriting events help them market their products and services and demonstrate their support for the Ohio Library community.

Program Submissions

Central to the mission of the OLC is the provision of continuing educational opportunities for its members. The OLC provides these opportunities in a number of different formats including workshops, webinars and conferences that focus on specific areas of library service. The OLC issues a “Call for Programs” when planning these events and accepts submissions from vendors as long as the programs are educational rather than promotional. Vendors interested in submitting program ideas for OLC educational events should contact or (614) 410-8092.
