Soon After I Lost My Job — Library Editorial Cartoon
“As people continue to struggle in the wake of the Great Recession and the ever-widening gap between the wealthy and everyone else, they have turned to libraries to find the resources they need. Libraries have long been a site for job seekers; now they have begun staffing social workers and registered nurses to serve a wider array of needs — continuing a tradition of the library as a safe, welcoming, and supportive place for people to turn to.”
— Kevin Moore, EveryLibrary’s 2017 Artist in Residence.

EveryLibrary is proud to welcome Kevin Moore as our 2017 Artist in Residence. As a noted editorial cartoonist and a working librarian, Mr. Moore will bring a unique and timely perspective to the political climate for libraries through new creative work. This Residency begins September 4th, 2017 and will run through November 7th, the traditional “Labor Day to Election Day” period when political and issue campaigns are in the minds of voters across the country. Mr. Moore will produce a series of weekly editorial cartoons focused on library-related issues and themes which will be released by EveryLibrary for use copyright free by libraries across social media and outreach channels. His Residency will be capped-off by an interactive collaboration across EveryLibrary’s extensive network of library activists and advocates.
