News and Announcements

Published on Thu, 04/14/2016 - 10:20am

The Ohio Library Council (OLC) has issued a statewide return on investment (ROI) report of Ohio’s public libraries. The report confirms that libraries provide a strong economic benefit to their communities. The report shows that Ohio’s public libraries save Ohioans money and also directly benefit the state economy. Public library services in Ohio are worth nearly $2.7 billion. For every dollar spent by Ohio public libraries in 2014, Ohioans received $5.48 in total economic value. Additionally, Ohio has the highest library use per capita in the nation. Compared to other states, Ohio libraries are also more cost efficient with one of the lowest cost per transaction rates in the country. Ohio’s figure of $2.88 is well below the national average.
