National Library PAC

I am sure everyone out there is sick of all the Political Action Committees (PACs) and their negative ads, but PACs are not all evil.  Case in point, current President of the BPL board and former Director of Membership Development for the ALA, John Chrastka, has create EveryLibrary.  Instead of raising money for candidates, EveryLibrary will raise fund nationallt to spend on local library ballot initiatives like  tax rates, bonds, and other referenda.

What a great idea.  In the current political climate, people have lost track of all the good a PAC could do, but not John.  He is out there reminding us all that libraries and politics are already intertwined, so why not use the polticial fund raising tools to help us.
