Our Goal: Build the resources we need to help libraries succeed at the ballot box
To run a successful library ballot measure, two key groups of stakeholders need to activated: the library Information Only team and the local Vote YES committee. EveryLibrary works with both groups in important but different ways. The local Vote YES committee is able to conduct the a full range of Get Out the Vote activities, and EveryLibrary provides consulting and capacity-building to help them succeed. But because library Information Only teams are limited in what they can and cannot say on public time, they need specific, experienced guidance for their outreach efforts. EveryLibrary provides specialized Information Only training and coaching to staff, trustees, and volunteers that helps them be effective communicators. We provide these services to libraries and Vote YES committees on a pro-bono basis. All of our work – and the direct donations we make to committees – is supported by our donors.
