A Win for Liberty, NY
Great news from our friends in Liberty, NY. on winning their building bond election last night (August 9) 264 to 45.
Their library can now undertake a big remodeling project that has been in the planning and feasibility stage for some time. The updates to the library include ADA compliance, better use of a more flexible space, and the chance to bring the building up to par as a 21st century facility for the great staff who work there.
EveryLibrary helped the staff and board with their informational communications - the Plan A and Plan B conversation that is so important for the community. We also helped the vote Yes folks with their messaging and voter data. It's not a huge number of people who live or vote there, but we're glad to see a margin like this.
Like with all our election work, our consulting and coaching and data crunching with them was pro-bono. Our donors helped us help them. If you like the idea that someone is out there providing these free services to library campaigns, you need to be a donor today. Most of our donors are sending us $5 or $10 a month. We help libraries win elections all over the map with that kind of support. Help us help the next 12 libraries in November.
