Subject: LJ request for library referenda information

Library Journal is collecting information for its annual referenda roundup and we need your help to provide an accurate accounting of 2013's campaigns. Our report of pass/fail results and campaign details will help libraries plan for future ballot measures.

Did any public libraries in your state have building or operating referenda on the ballot in the past year (12/01/12 through 11/30/13)? Please reply back with a list of those libraries so we may follow-up with them. If there were no ballot issues in your state last year, a reply back to that effect would be welcome as well.

If possible, please forward this email to the appropriate libraries in your state that you know had operating or building measures up for a vote. We are hoping to receive a completed survey about each ballot measure, regardless of whether it passed or failed. Surveys must be completed by January 24.

Buildings referenda survey link:

Prefer to fill out the survey in Word? The survey documents are attached and can be emailed back to me at lgirmsheid at mediasourceinc.com<mailto:lgirmsheid at mediasourceinc.com> or faxed to 973-969-9260.

Many thanks for your help! I look forward to hearing from you.
