OhioNet was formed in 1977 around the novel idea that libraries of all types and sizes share one important similarity: they all want to strengthen their communities and give their patrons their very best. With this thought at the center of our mission, the consortium began a period of expansion welcoming libraries of all types: public, academic, corporate, and otherwise, to pool resources, share skills, build partnerships, and discover commonalities that would strengthen and lift up the communities we serve.
