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.

This site uses Paypal, but you can also make a monthly donation via ActBlue here.

Yet, library funding within the United States faces continual cuts. The rise of anti-intellectualism and anti-government organizations like the Tea Party and the Koch Brothers Funded SuperPAC, Americans for Prosperity, 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 of stable library funding through our advocacy and support for libraries at the ballot box. That means that if you donate just $5 a month for one year, you will have helped us raise almost $100,000 for libraries! And if you donate our biggest ask on this page, just $15 a month, you will have helped us raise almost $300,000 for libraries!

Your monthly donation might be less than coffee, but it does so much more. Your donations allow us to provide pro-bono consulting to libraries in crisis. Through your donations we can make direct contributions to library ballot campaigns. And of course, your donations help us build the tools and data that libraries need to continue to serve their communities. You make it all possible with your small monthly donations.


As a 501(c)4 organization, contributions to EveryLibrary are not tax deductible. 

 You may donate by check or money order (US Funds only) made out to:
