The Voice of the Market! — Library Editorial Cartoon
“Earlier this year Mick Mulvaney, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, submitted the budget proposal for the coming year to Congress. Among many huge cuts to programs for education, arts and humanities, and scientific research was the elimination of $231 Million from the Institute of Museums and Libraries. The IMLS provides vital services to libraries across the country, including Interlibrary Loan, which allows libraries to share resources and expand information access to their patrons. This cartoons aims to mock the attitude that trivializes the need people have for information, especially in our age of isolated information bubbles. And beyond that, to encourage you to contact your Congressperson and urge them to support the IMLS.”

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.
