The First Campaign Win of 2017!

We are excited to announce our first win of 2017 in Madison, Connecticut. The vote was a terrific 1,897 in support of the library project, while only 550 people voted no. This win last night (February 7, 2017) means the library can more than double in size, from its current 17,000 square feet to 37,000 […]

Election Day 2016 for EveryLibrary Campaigns

Over $300 million in library funding was at stake yesterday for the 16 library communities EveryLibrary supported. Results on Election Night were mixed.

This August, […]

Measure F - Kern County - ALE

We Learn More from Our Losses

We’re sorry to report that both Kern County, CA. and Oakley, CA. lost their measures yesterday. They both got simple majorities but not the 66% they needed to pass. Oakley will likely go back to the drawing board on a new library for their growing town. Kern County Library faces a huge budget problem and a […]

Both sets of staff and boards did years and years of planning, […]
