Securing Funding for your Library


Library funding is dependent on the will of the local voters and/or local politicians. Understanding how to navigate political spheres of influence, garner support, and win campaigns are the keys to sustainable library funding. In this presentation, Libby Post (President and Strategist in Chief of Communications Services), and Patrick "PC" Sweeney (Political Director of EveryLibrary), will discuss lessons learned on the campaign trail. By sharing their perspectives and stories from local library election wins and losses, attendees will learn what to do (and not do) throughout the buildup to a local library funding initiative and walk away with a greater understanding of the politics of library funding.
