Ohio library officials and many of their patrons are celebrating this week. That’s because 16 of the 17 local library tax levies that were on the Tuesday ballot were okayed by voters.
This week’s 95% approval rate for local library levies is even larger than the passage rate in last November’s election. That’s when 80% of the library levies were okayed by voters.
