SWON formed in 1973 when a group of library directors in southwest Ohio and northern Kentucky wanted a vehicle for pooling resources, sharing knowledge and collaborating, to better serve their patrons.

SWON continues that mission today by providing continuing education, taught by SWON staff or other experts to our Supporting Members and to any library staff member in southwest Ohio. SWON also helps librarians learn from each other through special interest groups that meet in person and through community resources shared on this site.

SWON provides other free benefits to Supporting Members, like consulting work and customized CE classes. Supporting Members receive reduced CE rates, including our yearly events, Level-Up Labs, other workshops and webinars. SWON staff travel to Supporting Member libraries to teach classes and learn how we can help.

Collaborating: It's in our operating instructions.
