Library urges public to contact senatorsWritten by Kristen Criswell | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Toledo-Lucas County Public Library as well as other agencies through out the state will be impacted if the Ohio State Senate does not pass the bi-partisan House Bill 318 by Dec. 15.
“No action by the state senate is absolutely unacceptable,” said Clyde Scoles, director of the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library. “Another cut would mean another look at the reduction of hours, staff and material the library provides.”
Schools K-12, higher education, social service agencies and local governments would also be affected if the bill did not pass.
The bill would provide enough money to balance the budget next year, Scoles said.
Libraries across the state are urging citizens to contact state senators to pass the bill. Telephone numbers and e-mails for senators can be found on library Web sites. Visit toledolibrary.org for more information.
