Public Libraries: EveryLibrary Releases 2014 Annual Report
Congrats and kudos to EveryLibrary Founder/Executive Director John Chrastka and the other members of the EveryLibrary team on the publication of the organization’s 2014 Annual Report.
The document provides details about the vital work EveryLibrary did during 2014 to support public libraries in the United States. The report also includes goals for 2015.
From an EveryLibrary Blog Post:
In 2014, our donors saw our impact. We are happy to report a successful year in meeting our goals. Our funders and the broader library advocacy community know that we continue to positively impact the outcome of ballot measures. Our donors saw a $1 : $1600 ROI as we helped 14 of 18 campaigns win over $31.2 million in stable tax revenue last year. Our work with library communities on town/city/county budget negotiations turned around several local funding issues.
Our ambition for 2015 is to diversify and increase our funding streams to provide for full-time staffing and expand our capacity to engage voters for libraries
In 2015, EveryLibrary plans to impact at least 25 library communities at the ballot box and through budget negotiations in towns/cities/counties across the country.
