What does it take for a free democratic society to survive?
For our nation to progress, we must ensure the preservation of our records. We must provide free and open access to information to all citizens. We must ensure that everyone, regardless of age, gender, race or creed has the ability to develop information literacy skills necessary to participate in the democratic process. Libraries do all of this and more.
Yet, library funding within the United States faces continual cuts. The rise of anti-intellectualism and anti-government organizations like the Tea Party has resulted in shrinking library budgets- denying Americans their right to access the library.
We’re asking you to help us fight. This battle isn’t just about books and summer reading programs- it’s about preserving the cornerstone of democracy itself. All it takes is a monthly donation of $1, $3 or $5. That costs less than a cup of coffee! We use your donations to turn every dollar you give EveryLibrary into 1,600 dollars of stable library funding through our advocacy and support for libraries at the ballot box.
Your monthly donation might be less than coffee, but it does so much more.
EveryLibrary is a registered 501c4 organization (FEIN 46-1534149). We invite you to check up on us before donating by finding out more about us on Guidestar, the most trusted guide to non-profits on the Internet.
