EveryLibrary Fundraiser in Washington DC during ALA Annual

Join us for our Annual Fundraiser in Washington DC at Buffalo Billiards during the American Library Association's Annual Conference on June 22nd and help support libraries in the United States.

Official Event

We're excited to bring you another fun fundraiser during the American Library Association Conference in Washington DC. Built on the success of the sell-out fundraiser at ALA in New Orleans and the fun we had throwing axes in Philadelphia during PLA, we are planning another sell-out event with a lot of fun activities, free drinks, light snacks, and networking opportunities for attendees as well as special guests!

You can also purchase tickets by starting a $5 per month donation here.

This year, we'll be hosting our event at Buffalo Billiards, just a short distance from the Convention Center. This fun space offers billiards, skeeball, shuffleboard, ping ping, darts and much more. Your ticket includes access to everything that Buffalo Billiards has to offer and an open bar with beer, wine, and well. Plus, don't forget about those opportunities to meet with and connect with some of your favorite friends and colleagues and meet new people.

Get the best deal by purchasing your tickets for just $25 before June 1st! After that, tickets will be $35 until the day of the event and then $45 at the door if we don't sell out (but we usually sell out). If you'd like to support libraries throughout 2019 and into 2020, we are also offering tickets to anyone who starts a $5 per month donation here. So get your tickets early and join us for this fun event!

Finally, because EveryLibrary is an organization that supports libraries at the ballot box and fights against library defunding measures through pro-bono consulting, digital tools, on the ground training, and more, this fundraiser will help EveryLibrary continue on it success throughout 2019.

If you can't make the event or aren't attending ALA in Washington DC, you can still help another librarian attend while supporting libraries with your contribution with the Gift a Ticket option! We'll find someone to attend in your place.

Special Thanks to Our Sponsors!

Bywater Solutions
We are happy to help celebrate the 10th Anniversary of ByWater Solutions and to welcome their team as our Special Guest. Over the past ten years, ByWater Solutions has grown to support over 1,500 libraries of all shapes and sizes, from small special libraries to large multi-site consortiums and ARL Academic libraries. Their emphasis on service and support has in many ways re-shaped the library technology market and has resulted in a stronger emphasis on LSP support across the board. Brendon, Nate, Jessica, and the whole ByWater team have been great partners and sponsors for EveryLibrary. We wish them well on this fantastic milestone!

Conversight
We are happy to welcome the Conversight team as our Special Guests. Their new project Libro is a voice-based platform, allowing patrons and students to search their library’s catalog, reserve and renew materials, learn about upcoming events, reserve rooms and programs and more, all through a conversation with their smart speaker or mobile device. Libro’s ability to connect the library and its patrons through a conversation helps libraries meet ADA compliance standards and engage patrons in a new, easy-to-use way.
