Find Help in Tough Times
The State Library of Ohio has just launched Find Help in Tough Times, a new one-stop center on their website to help residents quickly locate important information and resources during these difficult economic times.
According to State Librarian Jo Budler, “The State Library understands that this is a challenging time for everyone. We created the Find Help in Tough Times statewide center to highlight the valuable work of state and federal agencies, as well as state and national organizations, and make it easier for people needing assistance to find their services and information.”
Find Help in Tough Times is easily accessible from the State Library website and is divided into six sections that include Employment, Financial, Health & Wellness, Housing, Parenting, and Help for Seniors. Within these sections there are links to help with topics such as finding jobs, training opportunities, services for the unemployed, insurance, home health care, childcare, tax help, and more.
The State Library welcomes feedback on Find Help in Tough Times and asks for residents to share stories about their experiences during these tough times. Some of the stories will be posted so that others may benefit.

Virtual JFK will be showing at the Cleveland Museum of Art
Combining rare footage from numerous Kennedy press conferences, in-depth interviews and a close reading of the documentary record, the film argues that critical decisions about the use of restraint and coercive diplomacy often require greater acts of courage than the use of force. Produced by fellows of the Watson Institute for International Studies, the film applies what Harvard historian Niall Ferguson calls "virtual history" to consider what President John F. Kennedy might have done in Vietnam if he had not been assassinated in 1963 and was instead re-elected in 1964. More information about the film appears below and at www.virtualjfk.com.
