Toledo rocks, but where's the big boys?

Here's the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library's home page as of this morning.

Let me say this: Toledo, you rule.

I have to ask -- where are you, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Cleveland Public Library, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, and Columbus Metropolitan Library??? If there's anything on your websites about this issue, you've done a fine job hiding it.

Four of the five biggest libraries in the state have NOTHING on their websites about the upcoming cuts proposed in the state budget. Only Dayton among the Big 5 has anything on their site. They were on the ball Friday.

How can the libraries expect their patrons to rally around them if our biggest libraries aren't leading the charge? WHERE ARE YOU??????
