Every Budget is a Referendum About Your Library
Wednesday, February 19; 2 pm
Presented by: John Chrastka, Executive Director
EveryLibrary, Chicago (IL)
Your patrons and customers are also voters and constituents of city and county elected leadership. While you may not go out directly to the voters about next year’s budget, the same tools and techniques for running a get-out-the-vote campaign should be put to work for your library with local government. Join John Chrastka, executive director of EveryLibrary, to learn about ways to maximize your visibility in the community and new ways to frame your day-to-day work.
John Chrastka is executive director of EveryLibrary and a long time library trustee, supporter, and advocate. He is president of the Board of Trustees for the Berwyn (IL) Public Library (2006 – present) and is a former president of the Reaching Across Illinois Libraries System (RAILS) multi-type library system. EveryLibrary is the first national political action committee for libraries. It is dedicated to helping local library communities plan and win ballot measures like bonds, levies, and other referendum that renew or extend library funding.
