We make it happen all around the country for libraries at the ballot box. After that, you get to party hard.  It’s in the Constitution.  

Thanks to the 75+ people who came out last night for our fundraiser before California Library Association in Long Beach. We’ll be here at #clanoise through Weds talking about library campaigns and meeting new friends.
