A huge congratulations to Steven Campbell and the Scenic Regional Library community for winning their first new levy since 1959 yesterday. With your help, EveryLibrary supported the Vote YES for Scenic Regional Library committee with a $1,000 donation and capacity building consulting. We’re happy to see them win this new revenue. The library trustees and staff have a significant building and remodeling project ahead of them, including a new branch in Warren County. The revenue will help improve collections, programs, and services across their system’s branches, as well as adding hours to their schedule. It is new money and a fundamental change in the way that library system can serve their public.
The Scenic Regional Library is our first campaign of the 2014 election cycle. We’re gearing up to help 20 more (with another 9 aleady announced). Help us help the next ones win by donating today at rally.org/everylibrary.
