EveryLibrary Institute Unveils New Report on Library Funding in the U.S.
The EveryLibrary Institute published “Funding Our Priorities: Comparisons of Public Library Funding and Services With Other Sectors in Post-COVID America” (registration required), a report that “examines the current state of library funding in the US, analyzes trends and patterns in library funding, and provides recommendations for policymakers, library leaders, and advocates to ensure sustainable funding for libraries and information services.”
“‘Funding Our Priorities’ is a comprehensive and insightful report on municipal and state revenue and expenditure priorities through a library lens," says John Chrastka, the EveryLibrary Institute’s executive director. “It comes at a critical time when federal COVID relief funds are beginning to sunset, and traditional pressures on state and local budgets will return. We hope this report will serve as a valuable resource for library advocates, policymakers, and stakeholders committed to ensuring that libraries continue to serve their communities effectively.”
