Lessons from the 2016 Campaign Trail for our Libraries with John Chrastka of EveryLibrary

March 31 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Lessons from the 2016 Campaign Trail for our Libraries
Presented by John Chrastka, Executive Director of EveryLibrary
In 2016, Illinois libraries were the target of anti-tax special interest groups, local watchdogs, and strident No campaigns in the primary and general election cycles. We also saw several district consolidation or withdrawal measures on ballots across the region. If the attitudes of the electorate is changing, how do we prepare our libraries? Likewise, as the federal government changes, how do we anticipate new local and state budget pressures for our libraries? Join EveryLibrary executive director John Chrastka for a discussion about voter attitudes and budget trends, and an open-forum discussion of ways that LACONI members anticipate these changes together. 90 mins
