EveryLibrary is proud today to announce our support and endorsement of the Vote YES for The Moniteau County Library Committee and their campaign for a $.02 cent library levy in California, MO on April 5, 2016. With recent cuts to state aid, the Moniteau County Library board is asking voters in California to equalize their levy support from $.10 cents to $.12 cents. The Vote YES for the Moniteau County Library Committee is a group of neighbors and library supporters from across California who are dedicated to sharing the word about how the library levy will benefit their town and everyone in the county.
EveryLibrary has provided pro-bono support to the Moniteau County Library board as they assessed funding options to maintain library services in the face of state cuts. The $.02 cent levy is essential funding for the Moniteau County Library and will help it continue programs like Legos on the Library, Children and Youth’s Summer Reading Program, and delivery services for the homebound. Voting YES on April 5th in California ensures that families, students, job seekers, and readers of all ages have the collections they need and the programs they want from their library.
EveryLibrary is the first national political action committee for libraries. As a national library advocacy organization, EveryLibrary is supporting the Vote YES for the Moniteau County Library Committee in their work reaching out to neighbors in California as they tell the story about how libraries transform communities for the 21st Century.
