Who is EveryLibrary?
EveryLibrary is the first and only national organization dedicated to building library voter support. We “promote public, school, and college libraries, including by advocating in support of public funding for libraries and building public awareness of public funding initiatives.” We are creating a national network of Americans who will take action to create a better future for library funding.
We want the public to support library funding. It’s as simple as that. We employ a highly skilled staff of freelance writers who create articles to spark public interest in libraries. These stories add to EveryLibrary’s online presence via Medium, Facebook, and Twitter. The stories spring from our writers’ unique mix of interests and expertise and offer a distinctive and insightful lens on the merit of libraries. We support grassroots library advocacy and hope to galvanize voters to support library funding. Learn more at action.everylibrary.org.
