Library Help

I wanted to pass this along from my friend who works at the library downtown:

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to make you aware of something very important affecting our community this week.

Governor Strickland’s proposed budget cuts public library funding by 50%. For many of our libraries here in Ohio, this is devastating news. The Toledo Public Library has issued a press release (attached) with more information and has also created a form on their home page where you can send your legislators an email regarding this issue. Click here to visit their website: http://www.toledolibrary.org/. They also provide a link to Governor Strickland’s website where you can also comment on this issue. The library is urging you to make contact by Thursday, June 25th. I’ve sent a personal email and would ask that you do the same if you wish. They make it really easy by providing talking points; it took me less than 5 minutes.

Even if you live outside Toledo, this affects you too. Visit your local libraries’ website or call them to find out how to contact your local legislators regarding this issue.

Thank you for your consideration!

Great PSA! I received an e-mail from the library about this issue yesterday, but forgot to voice my support. Thanks for the reminder!
