Save Ohio Libraries

Several organizations are rallying support for Ohio libraries, now facing a 50% budget cut (unlike libraries in the rest of the country, libraries in Ohio depend on state support for most of their funding).

The Save Ohio Libraries blog has information on how to get involved.

Library Journal has more details on the story and editor-in-chief Francine Fialkoff published an appeal today to Ohio’s governor, Dear Governor Strickland, which describes how important Ohio libraries are to their communities and to the rest of the country.

Vendors are also joining the fight (see’s blog).

To all our friends in Ohio libraries; you’ve created some of the most innovative library systems in the country and a huge base of loyal users, which gives us hope that they won’t let you down.
