A Great Night for Our Libraries At the Ballot!

Yesterday was a great Election Day for the library communities that EveryLibrary backed! Seven out 9 of our libraries passed their measures.

A Loss in Coventry, CT.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This article pertains to the November 2017 campaign for the Booth & Dimock Library that EveryLibrary was involved in. If you are looking for information about the November 2018 election in town and ways that the Coventry GOP is trying to deceive voters about EveryLibrary's role, please visit http://action.everylibrary.org/coventry.  


The Koch Brothers and Libraries

We are continuing to see the Koch Brothers Super PAC, Americans for Prosperity, go after libraries. This election in Plainfield on April 4th is the sixth clear example of their involvement in the agenda to defund libraries. We need your help to fight back. When the Koch Brothers and AFP puts out an anti-tax and anti-library attack, they do it with direct mail and robocalls - and they always do it late in the campaign. We need the resources to confront these anti-tax forces before they can start in the next town. Help us stop them with a one time donation today or a $5-10 monthly donation.


Great News for Library Funding! But There's So Much More To Do...

We are excited to announce that thanks to the tens of thousands of Americans who signed the petitions against Donald Trump’s proposed cuts to federal funding for libraries, the $1.2 trillion FY2018 budget bill (H.R. 3354) passed by 211-198 margin.

From Advocacy to Activism for Libraries

 

I am proud of our 5th Anniversary today. As the first national political action committee for libraries, EveryLibrary was started with the idea that "any library funding measure anywhere should matter to every library everywhere".
