Ohio public libraries are essential to their local communities. This past April, the Ohio Library Council released the Return on Investment of Ohio’s Public Libraries and Comparison with Other States report, compiled by Howard Fleeter and Associates. The report shows:
- Ohio has the second highest percentage of registered borrowers at 77.7%, behind only Minnesota.
- Ohio has the highest number of library transactions per capita in the country, utilizing library materials and services at a rate that is more than twice the national average.
- Ohio also ranks first nationally in library visits per capita, averaging 7.5 visits per year for each person.
Euclid Public Library is one of the 251 district libraries serving students, business owners and residents. For the full report, visit www.olc.org. Libraries provide a wealth of information to help with career transitions, homework assignments, college preparation, home repairs and more. We play a critical part in helping to transform our communities.
We hope to catch you reading up on one of these topics this month as we celebrate Get Caught Reading! This nationally recognized campaign was launched in 1999 to share the fun of reading with all ages. On Saturday, May 7 stop by and pick up a free comic book in recognition of Free Comic Day. Supplies are limited, so arrive early.
