Abstract (Document Summary)

When libraries have initiatives on their local ballots, they depend on favorable reactions from voters for the initiatives to pass -- but that means they have to get the voting public on their side before the election. Libraries that need guidance can turn to EveryLibrary, the first and only nonprofit library advocacy organization with the singular goal of securing funding for libraries by helping them achieve positive election outcomes. Founded in 2012 by John Chrastka, EveryLibrary collects donations that allow the organizaton to work on all types of libraries' local ballot initiatives. EveryLibrary uses political money, not charitable money, to help libraries reach out to voters. It is a 501(c)4 organization, which means that it does not have to disclose the names of its donors or the amounts of their contributions to the IRS. In 2013, EveryLibrary conducted seven library campaigns and won five, and so far in 2014, it's helped with 21 initiatives.
