We just mailed two checks to library campaigns!

Every year EveryLibrary works with dozens of libraries that are going to the voters for funding. One of the ways that we support libraries at the ballot is by making direct contributions to their campaigns. In fact, through direct campaign donations from our Rapid Response Fund and through pro-bono campaign consulting, we are able to secure over $1,600 in stable local funding for libraries for every $1 we receive in donations.
