Introducing the Nation's Newest Library District
The library in Branson Missouri was set to close in 2024 but I'm thrilled to share that we helped it become the nation's newest Library District instead.
Now, Library services for this part of Missouri - despite the issues with the Secretary of State - will continue to grow.
The Taney Hills Community Library has been serving the Branson area for almost 90 years as a local small nonprofit.
Unfortunately, the cost of doing business as a non-profit Library exceeded their fundraising and endowment capabilities.

The leadership team knew it was important to go to the voters to ask for a tax levy to fund a true public library and with assistance from EveryLibrary and active organizing and campaigning, they succeeded -- by 47 votes.
EveryLibrary is proud to work with libraries in communities like Branson to ensure that library services thrive. We consulted closely with the existing Community Library leadership team and the new library board, made a direct donation to the ballot committee, and helped them plan and execute a winning campaign.
Our donors make these kinds of important initiatives a reality!
