Financing Public Libraries in Ohio.
Stocker, Frederick D.
This study is an outgrowth of the plans and programs set in motion by the study of professor Ralph Blasingame, Rutgers University Graduate School, in 1968, and the 1969 legislation setting up the Ohio Library Development Plan (OLDP). Its purposes are to describe the system of financing public libraries in Ohio, to identify problem areas, and to examine various alternatives for funding the Ohio Library Development Plan and for generally strengthening the financing of local libraries. The specific tasks include: estimation of the cost of funding Area Library Service Organizations (ALSO's) as spelled out in S.B. 262 and projection of these costs to 1978; projection of local situs intangibles tax collections and allocations to libraries, by county, to 1978; and an estimate of the costs of bringing all Ohio's local libraries up to the performance standards established by the Ohio Library Association. Attention is given also to the problems inherent in the local situs intangibles tax and in its administration, and to the relation of library support to local perceptions of "need" for library services.
