Will You #votelibraries this November?

Regardless of what happens at the top of the ticket, we need you to get you involved in spreading the #votelibraries message! That’s because, this year, millions of Americans are also voting on hundreds of library ballot measures on Election Day and we can make a difference together.  We are proud that many of our donor-partners like OverDrive, Gale Cengage Learning, Mango, Demco, Brainfuse, Bywater, made it possible for us to share a #votelibraries message with millions of voters in the weeks leading up to the Election. But we also want to make it easy for you to spread that message too. That’s why we are asking you to help us remind millions of Americans to vote for libraries by changing your profile pictures across your social media to one of our #votelibraries images.

Change your profile picture to one of these great images to show your support for libraries this election season!

In red states and blue States alike, we are working hard to motivate Americans to vote yes for libraries. As part of that process, we spend a lot of our resources on educating voters about the importance of libraries across the country. We can reduce the cost of messaging Americans about libraries if they are already connected to us through social media and email. In fact, we know we can drastically increase the number of people we reach when we need petitions signed to support libraries, while reducing the cost of reaching those people if we increase the number of likes on Facebook and the number of followers on Twitter. We have a big huge goal of reaching 500,000 likes on Facebook and you can help us achieve that by taking a few minutes and inviting your friends to like our page.

Help us reach more Americans to educate them about the importance of libraries by inviting your friends to like our page.

We can also keep the pressure up until election day if you take the next step and help amplify the #votelibraries message on your own social media with the#votelibraries hashtag. We would also love if you retweet us or share our Facebook posts and keep using the #votelibraries tag before Election Day. People are paying attention now. It’s a short and critical window to reach other voters.

Join us Election Night for our #librarywatchparty on Twitter and Facebook, too. We start when polls close in the East and we’ll be posting results for about 200 library elections across the country.
