Find Your Rep!

If our gratitude could be expressed in a mathematical equation, it would definitely include the symbol for infinity!

In other words, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU one zillion times over for your fantastic support in reponse to Governor Strickland's proposal to drastically cut the Public Library Fund. We love serving you and we hope to continue to serve you with the same levels of quality and consistency that you've grown to expect from our library.

Today, one of our Super Patrons was in the middle of writing a letter to her local legislators in support of public libraries and called our Reference Desk with a question that I'm sure has popped up in a few Ohioans' minds over the last few weeks.

The question?

How do I know for sure who my State Representative is? Especially for you folks who live on the edge of municipalities, sometimes it's difficult to discern just who you should contact when you want to make your voice heard. The Ohio House of Representatives has a nifty tool on their website that allows you to do a search for your Rep by your zip code. Simply log onto the House website and in the right-hand side of the screen, under "Quick Member Search," enter your zip code (+4), select "search," and voila! Your very own State Representative will greet you on the next screen with all the information you could ever want or need.

Again, thank you for your wonderful support, encouragement, strength, and hope. We can do this!
