Gov. John Kasich’s executive workforce board is recommending ways that Ohio’s education, nonprofit, labor and business sectors can work together to match skilled workers to available jobs.
Some of its suggestions Tuesday included rebranding public libraries as “continuous learning centers,” urging clearer relationships between local schools and business groups and expanding use of apprenticeships and certifications as credit toward high-school and college completion.

The specific passage about rebranding public libraries can be found in the section, “Recommendation 8B” (PDF pages 28-29).
Rebrand Ohio’s public libraries as “Continuous Learning Centers” that serve as hubs for information about local in-demand jobs and relevant education and training resources. Additionally, bolster the Ohio Digital Library’s online education resources to provide more accessible training materials to adult learners.
