Speak Up for Your Library!

This year’s Summer Reading Program theme is all about expressing yourself. With the proposed cuts to library funding, now is the time to make your voice heard!

What does the library mean to you? A safe place to hang out after school? Somewhere you can go for help with your homework? Your only source for new books? The first place you could access the Internet?

Let your local legislators know how important the library is to you! Email Governor Strickland today, or contact the following state representatives to share your thoughts. You can make a difference!

Not sure what to write? Check out this sample letter.

Senator Bill Harris, President of the Senate
614-466-8086

Senator David Goodman, 3rd District
614-466-8064

Representative Kevin Bacon, 21st District
614-466-6030

Representative Marian Harris, 19th District

Representative Nancy Garland, %20th District

Thanks, Kelly! We need as many people as possible to speak up before June 30 to ask the governor NOT to cut funding to Ohio’s public libraries! Every voice counts!
