I wanted to share a story with you about the East Fishkill Public Library and how they found our #votelibraries images online and used them in a recent successful library budget vote. While we’ve worked on dozens of other library campaigns this year, I hadn’t met East Fishkill’s director Gloria Goverman until after their October 6th win. Her library had a $975,000 budget vote pass with over 80% that day. She credits using our engaging VoteLibraries images on their social media and print information with part of that win:
“I was looking for new vote graphics,” Gloria said. “I always used a photo of our very old ballot box, but I wanted something fresh. The Vote Libraries graphics came up in a Google search. I had to plow through a lot of red, white, and blue before I found it. Talk about being thrilled! Finding good library election images that are free and legal is pretty hard. And there is a wide selection, too.”
Change your profile pictures to support libraries!
We’d love to see people across the country exchange their profile pics across their social media for vote libraries art this election season! Just download your favorite art here and make it your new profile pic! Help us encourage people to vote libraries this November.
When we started EveryLibrary, it was with the vision that “any library ballot measure anywhere should matter to every library everywhere.” Producing high-quality, copyright free images for library communities like Gloria’s is exactly in line with our mission. Last year, dozens of donors stepped-up to help us hire the designers through the Creative Action Network for a first round of artwork. Now, we need your help to buy some VoteLibraries Google ads and boosts on Facebook to use these VoteLibraries images to support campaigns across the country.
Become a monthly donor today. A $10 a month donation buys a lot of ads. If you can help as a $50 one time donor, we’ll put that to work before November 8th so library folks in small towns and big cities can find and use these free VoteLibraries resources. We’d like to help any library anywhere win their election. It’s the right approach to library advocacy, and we can only do it with your help.
You can buy these and other VoteLibraries posters, totebags, mugs, and t-shirts at our VoteLibraries store. Proceeds support EveryLibrary, the artists, and the Creative Action Network.
