Funding for Ohio’s Public Libraries may soon take a real hit. Governor Taft has already suggested in his two-year proposal to cut the budget for the State Library System by one-third, and now House Republicans are suggesting even further cuts. Since Muskingum County libraries do not have operating levies, 95% of their funding comes from the State Budget. If the proposed budget cuts takes place, this year alone, the John McIntire library in Zanesville, will lose one hundred, seventeen thousand dollars. Librarians from all over the state will be meeting with Ohio Legislators on May 2nd. They are also urging concerned citizens to contact their representatives.
