This afternoon I received this attachment detailing Ohio-wide concerns on 
the likely closure of the Cincinnati library for the blind merging services 
with Cleveland. Should you wish to take any steps regarding this, I suggest 
dialogue on your part with any Ohio senator including your own, since all 
Ohio patrons will find service affected, and the budget bill is still in the 
Senate for about another week undergoing changes before joint discussion 
with the House on finalizing it before June 30, when the governor is hoped 
to sign it.

I am only passing this information on and not able to answer further 
questions, but I believed that it would be of interest and concern to you, 
which is why I am sharing.

Best regards,
