News and Updates
I truly appreciate the coverage in American Libraries Magazine, the flagship member publication of the American Library Association.
I am extremely pleased, proud, and humbled to announce that Patrick Sweeney and Erica Findley are joining me as founding Board members here at EveryLibrary.
EveryLibrary, the first nation-wide Political Action Committee for libraries, today announces a new fundraising partnership with BulldogFinance Group (BFG), a Washington, D.C. based political fundraising consultancy focused on progressive causes and candidates, to begin outreach to the public in support of libraries at the ballot box.
John Berry has been thinking, speaking, and publishing about library advocacy since before I was born.
Thanks to Wolper Information Services for the chance to talk with Insight and Outlook about how EveryLibrary will support local libraries as they ask voters to fund operations, build or remodel buildings, and ensure the library and its staff are there for the next generation.
From HackLibSchool: "What’s cool about EveryLibrary is that they will exclusively be dedicated to advocating for library initiatives, connecting with local communities to get voter support." Spot on.
From Urban Librarians Unite (ULU - which is the coolest acronym in the biz):
Over the past few days I've been asked "Why can't ALA or OCLC or ULC just make a PAC for libraries?"
