Earlier this year, Governor Kasich introduced his state budget proposal for fiscal years(FY) 2018 and 2019. Gov. Kasich’s proposal would cut state funding to Ohio’s public libraries by more than $7 million in FY 2018 by reducing the Public Library Fund (PLF) from 1.7% of the state’s General Revenue Fund (GRF) to 1.66% of the GRF.
On May 2, the Ohio House passed the two-year state budget (Sub. HB 49). They decided NOT to maintain the PLF at the current funding of 1.7% of the GRF as we requested.
Sub. HB 49 formally moved to the Senate for consideration. The Senate still has an opportunity to make its own revisions over the coming weeks.
Now is the time to urge our State Senators to protect Ohio libraries from budget cuts.

Beginning March 26, 2017, the Library will no longer be able to accept credit card payments through the website. This is due to changes in PayPal's security requirements. Patrons will still be able to come into the library and have their credit card payments processed on site with the PayPal chip card reader.
