AIR Interview – VersAnnette and Community on a Shelf

VersAnnette Blackman-Bosia is the founder/owner of Soul Revival Healing Arts. As an EveryLibrary 2019 Artist in Residence, her residency will feature a series of large canvasses called “Community on a Shelf” that explore themes of healing and reconciliation for communities and individuals through libraries. She is an artist, author, advocate & facilitator. Known affectionately as ‘Verse’, her experience is a melting pot of intuitive healing, painting, writing poetry, public speaking, and helping others see creativity as a catalyst for ‘digging in’ to rediscover their own innate gifts. Her work will be on display at the Oak Park (IL) Public Library beginning Saturday, October 19th.

Backing the Summer Meals and Learning Act of 2019 (H.R. 3667 and S. 2070)

EveryLibrary is proud to join a coalition of national, state, and local partner organizations to urge Congress to pass the "Summer Meals and Learning Act of 2019" (H.R. 3667 / S. 2070).  We are joining the National Summer Learning Association (NSLA) coalition because summer is a critical time for children from all walks of life, but especially those in low-income households with low food security and limited access to learning options.
