The 2019 Ohio Library Council Convention and Expo is going to be held at the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati September 25 to 27, 2019.  OA will attend as an exhibitor for the first time and we are excited to be part of this event. The Ohio Library Council is the statewide professional association which represents the interests of Ohio’s public libraries, their trustees, Friends and staff.  The membership of the OLC is composed of public library systems, library trustees, Friends of the Library groups, library staff members, other library institutions, and library-related commercial vendors. OA became an Associate Member of OLC this year.  After our work helping OLC select its new Executive Director, we wanted to deepen our relationship with them because of the valuable resources they provide which helps us become more effective helping our public library clients. If you will be at the conference, stop by our booth!  We can share how we have helped many of Ohio’s public libraries with compensation consulting, recruitment, and other Human Resources consulting projects. Can’t wait until the conference?  Contact us and check out our blog for more...
