The 2022 Family Guide is Now Available!

This is your place to connect to our entire collection of Ohio 4-H project books for the year. Each project book contains information and activities for members to explore as an organized group project or at home under the guidance of a parent or interested adult.

Ohio residents can order project books and other publications described in the Family Guide through local county Ohio State University Extension offices. Out-of-state residents or Ohio residents who want to buy online can go directly to
