Support EveryLibrary

My friend and colleague John Chrastka has launched EveryLibrary. Its mission is to help "public, school, and college libraries win bonding, tax, and advisory referendum, ensuring stable funding and access to libraries for generations to come."

Currently "EveryLibrary is seeking initial funding resources to become established as a 501(c)(4) nonprofit social welfare organization chartered to work exclusively on local library ballot initiatives. The organization will be registered in Illinois after reaching our funding/pledge goal from individual, corporate, union, and foundation donors. We will work in partnership with local library campaign leaders and independently to advocate for specific library initiatives among the voting public."

Consider joining me and hundreds of other library advocates in supporting the establishment of EveryLibrary.
