Rodman Library is partnering with the Ohio Benefit Bank (OBB) to assist people in our community. Help is available for Ohio’s veterans, families, and seniors. Our Reference staff will work with you in transferring your information into the correct computer databases that will help determine your level of assistance. Some of the benefit programs include food assistance, home energy assistance program (HEAP), health coverage, costs associated with prescription drugs for Medicare recipients, child care subsidies, USDA child nutrition programs, and more.
