  14. 14. History of Ohio Library Funding  The majority of funding for libraries in Ohio is from the Library and Local Government Support Fund (LLGSF)  -LLGSF established in 1985 to provide funding to libraries (previously funded by a state intangible property tax which was repealed)  -LLGSF is 5.7% of the state personal income tax collected in Ohio  -The LLGSF was reduced 8.3% in 2001 and has been frozen since 2002  -WPL funding reduced, creating a funding shortfall for our library, causing a series of actions to avoid financial disaster  While 78% of Ohio public libraries continue to depend on LLGSF almost entirely, many libraries have resorted to operating levies to support operations  -Westerville Public Library (WPL) passed a .8 mil levy in 2002  -The levy expires at year end 2007
