Without Support, Libraries Die

Get involved in the national campaign for American Libraries. Help us reach millions of Americans who support libraries by donating or clicking to tweet these messages.

We launched Libraries 2020 in order to talk to American voters about the importance of voting to support libraries. That’s because over 90% of library funding is dependent on the support of local voters and politicians. Without that support, libraries die.

We need people like you, who care about libraries, to help us reach more American voters in 2020. That’s why I’m emailing you to ask you to commit to supporting libraries through two important activities.

The first activity is to help us reach our fundraising goal. We need to raise 25,000 to fully launch this national initiative. We had a great launch on Giving Tuesday and we’ve already raised almost $10,000 across all of our platforms. If you can commit to giving just $25 today, we’ll easily reach our goal.


DONATE $25 TODAY

A donation of just $25 helps us reach over 2,5000 Americans with a pro-library message!


Second, if you can’t give today, please consider clicking to tweet the messages below to help us reach more people who care about American Libraries and help us raise the funding we need to ensure that libraries continue to exist well into the future.
