Last May, EveryLibrary helped the folks in Ronan, MT. campaign for and win a new independent library district. The funds are starting to come in - tax revenue - and they hosted a party on Tuesday to celebrate what they can now do for their community. Here’s what they said: 

A day to celebrate the community that voted to keep our library in service. Because of the Library District being voted in, we are able to do more for our community. In late February we hired 2 more staff members and are now open to the public 18 1/2 more hours per week. Mon-Fri 10 -7, Sat 10 -5. We will soon be adding more programming and are gearing up for an awesome Summer Reading Program. THANK YOU COMMUNITY!!!

Elections matter. Your donations made our work possible.

Happy National Library Week - one Election Day at a time.

The situation with money and politics took a radical step this week away from the ‘general interest’, passed just enabling ‘special interests’, to full-on deep-dive wealth-equals-voice singular interests.  We’re not good with that:

When Enough Money Calls the Tune, the General Public Will Not be Heard
"EveryLibrary is a Super PAC.  We lobby the public to advance an agenda and secure more money for our special interest group.  We put money into campaigns to influence the outcomes on Election Day.  Our mission is to win at the ballot box and to work against forces that hamper our industry’s ability to grow.  We should happy about this week’s Supreme Court ruling that makes it easier for more money to flow into politics.  We should be filing Amicus to encourage that the last remaining shreds of campaign finance laws be stricken from the books.  Because that’s what special interest groups like us want…. <more>”

We&#8217;re backing the work of the "Yes on Measure G" committee in Georgetown, CA for their June 3rd parcel tax renewal.  It&#8217;s the basic funding for their library and accounts for 65% of their operating, collections, programs, and services revenue.  Without it, there would be significant cutbacks.  But with you and other EveryLibrary donors in the mix, we&#8217;re in a great position to help them.  Thank you all for the support. Put a heart on this and reblog, please.  It&#8217;s a must-win. rally.org/everylibrary

Just another manic Monday here at EveryLibrary. Help us work harder to help secure library funding on Election Day. We have identified our first 10 campaigns for 2014 that could mean $38.8 million in stable tax money, but we can’t do it without your help. Donate today.

Help! We really need some money&#8230; EveryLibrary needs to raise $40,000 to support our work on our first 10 campaigns of 2014. We are looking for $10,000 in personal donations from our friends, like you. We are also out working hard on corporate donations to fund the rest. Last year, for every dollar you donated we helped secure $1,450 in stable tax money at the ballot box. That means $10 can help us secure $14, 500 in 2014. Every little bit helps. Donate today.
