The Ohioana Library is a model of a successful public-private partnership. Although we receive partial funding from the State of Ohio, we rely on the generous support of individuals, businesses, foundations, and organizations to carry out our mission and programming. Your valuable contribution may take the form of a one-time general donation via our online store or a commemorative or memorial gift. Click the icon at left to make a donation via our online store.


Corporate and Foundation Sponsorships are special gifts to provide major underwriting for Ohioana projects and events. Sponsors receive special benefits and recognition for their involvement. For information on sponsorship opportunities with Ohioana, contact  Executive Director David Weaver at (614) 466-3831 or by  email at Click the icon at left to see the list of sponsors of the 2017 Ohioana Book Festival.


The Ohioana Library is the perfect place to  employ present talents or to develop new ones. Volunteers of all ages help us with reviewing books; collecting, organizing, and filing biographical information; entering data into the computer; preparing for special events; developing educational programs; research; and countless other projects. Click the icon at left to contact us if you are  interested in volunteering.
