Delaware Library Champions is a campaign of the Delaware Library Association and the Friends of Delaware Libraries with the support of EveryLibrary, the national political action committee for libraries, and the EveryLibrary Institute.
The Delaware Library Champions campaign is committed to engaging the public and promoting libraries' vital role in schools, communities, and campuses across the state. Our mission is to preserve and extend access to high-quality library services and resources while advocating for increased funding, improved facilities, and expanded programs that meet the diverse needs of all Delawareans. Through collaboration, innovation, and outreach, we strive to empower individuals and communities with the knowledge, skills, and resources necessary to thrive in a rapidly changing world.
We believe that libraries are essential for every Delawarean. Their continued success relies on the support and involvement of passionate individuals like you. Whether you're interested in advocating for increased funding and resources for libraries, volunteering your time to help with programs or events at your local library or school, or signing on to support our mission, there are many ways to get involved with the Delaware Library Champions campaign. By joining our community of library advocates, you can help us ensure that every person in Delaware has access to the educational, informational, and cultural resources that libraries provide. Together, we can preserve and extend the legacy of libraries in our state and create a brighter future for generations to come.
The Delaware Library Champions campaign is anchored by two outstanding organizations: the Delaware Library Association and the Friends of the Delaware Libraries. The Delaware Library Association is a professional organization representing librarians and staff throughout the state, advocating for their interests and providing opportunities for professional development and collaboration. The Friends of the Delaware Libraries is a non-profit organization that supports libraries through fundraising, advocacy, and volunteerism. Together, these organizations provide invaluable support to the Delaware Library Champions, helping us to achieve our goals of promoting the value of libraries and expanding access to library services and resources for all Delawareans. This partnership energizes us and we look forward to continuing to work together to strengthen the library community in Delaware.
