VoteLibraries is a community of library campaign experts devoted to helping local ballot committees succeed in voter outreach and engagement, while also supporting effective Informational communications campaigns by library staff and trustees.
We don’t want you to go it alone. Feel free to contact EveryLibrary for specific guidance or to answer questions. EveryLibrary is a pro-bono resource for your campaign. We don’t make any money on our recommendations. Our donors support our work and we provide you with advising, consulting, training and coaching for every step of a library campaign.

Information Only Resources
If you’re looking to improve your library’s official communications campaign and outreach, please visit the resources we have on the EveryLibrary website. The competencies are similar, but the difference between how to run a YES campaign versus as neutral, informational campaign by public employees or officials is significant.
EveryLibrary regularly trains and coaches library staff and boards on best practices for Info-Only communications campaigns.
