Southwest Public Libraries receives funding from two primary sources. The first is the Public Library Fund, which is funded by the State of Ohio and consists of 1.7% of General Revenue Fund taxes collected by the State. This fund provides 62% of SPL's funding, and revenue has been significantly down in 2024. The other primary source of funding (35%) is the 1 mill property tax approved by voters in November, 2010 and renewed in 2020. Money collected from library fines, fees, donations, and interest earned on investments accounts for 3% of SPL's funding.
