In the News - Midyear 2021 Edition

EveryLibrary continues to be in the news supporting libraries and librariesworkers. As we move into the second half of 2021 we're looking back at some of the important stories we helped shape. 

We know that being an effective library advocacy organization means creating visibility and impacts for libraries and library workers inside our sector and especially outside of the library space. From advocating for early vaccinations for library workers to preparing library leaders for ballot measures to supporting school librarians who are fighting for their jobs, EveryLibrary shows up and does the work. We are happy to share these articles and stories - along with interviews, quotes, and features from our leadership team.
