Funding for libraries would increase under Governor John Kasich's proposed two-year budget.

Mansfield-Richland County Public Library Director Joe Palmer was among a group of librarians who recently went to Columbus to discussed the budget with House Speaker William Batchelder.  

The spending plan calls for a 4 1/2% increase the first year and 2% the second year, which is not even a tenth of the $1.5-million a year that was cut from the local library.

Bachelder said he opposes parts of the Governor's budget, but will support more funding for libraries.

Palmer says Ohio libraries don't expect their state funding to be restored to the levels before the recession.

They just need enough of a boost to maintain services and prevent any more spending cuts.
