EveryLibrary Will Work for Public Libraries
In each election cycle, tens of millions of dollars are at stake for public libraries.
From bonding for new or remodeled building projects to changing milliages, levys, or tax rates that impact staffing, collections, programs, and services, public libraries are on the ballot. EveryLibrary will offer assistance to public libraries in both the pre-filing and campaign stages of an initiative. As a library evaluates fielding a ballot measure we can provide strategic consulting services, voter segmentation advice, and assistance in developing ballot language. We can assist in both feasibility studies and fundraising while helping you set up a local committee or PAC to operationalize voter education and get-out-the-vote campaigns for your initiative. During the run of a campaign, EveryLibrary can continue its technical and capacity-building consultancy while also providing direct financial support to the local committee or PAC in seed-stage or sustaining levels of support. In each instance, EveryLibrary will engage with the local library community to determine our best level and type of involvement. We work best for you when we work with you.
