Libraries across Ohio could be losing some much needed cash. Under Governor Ted Strickland's budget proposal, the Toledo Lucas County Public Library faces losing more than $200,000.
The bill would allow money to be taken out of the public library fund. More than half of the library's funding comes from that fund.
"It would mean a cut in services right now. Our materials budget has already been cut 10%, so that means no new books. No new collections," said Rhonda Sewell, media relations manager for Toledo area libraries.
The bill would affect all 250 public libraries in Ohio.
