Library Advocacy: EveryLibrary California Launches
EveryLibrary California is here for state-wide voter advocacy and winning funding for libraries at the state level. We firmly believe that libraries are one of the most important institutions for a sustainable democracy in this state because California libraries help our citizens grow and learn and gain the skills they need to become responsible and self-sufficient.
EveryLibrary is specifically charged with the task to work to win the proposition stemming from SCA7. SCA7 is a bill currently under review that would go to the voters of California to decide about making a constitutional change allowing libraries to win tax measures through a 55% margin instead of the current super majority of 66%. This would mean that libraries could win the funding that they need to be sustainable much more easily. We are here to fight to win for sustainable California Libraries.
