Libraries are for every single person that comes through the doors of their public library. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you are in life, or what path you’re on, the public library is there for you at all times. I’ve always believed this deep down in my heart. When I saw the Libraries Are For Everyone project pop up in 2017, the thing that I (and many other librarians) finally had was an image, a banner, and a rallying cry to accompany their feelings that libraries were for everyone.
Thanks to the kindness of Rebecca McCorkindale, there’s now a Pennsylvania Libraries Are For Everyone image for libraries, library associations, and everything and everyone else in between to use and share in Pennsylvania. I got to meet Rebecca, the creator of the popular Libraries Are For Everyone image this year at the 2018 Nebraska Library Association Conference (more on that here) and I was blown away by her positive attitude, her creativity, and above everything else how much she cared for her community through her library work.
Rebecca donated this image to me and as of September 2020 if you would like to get this image please email me at justinthelibrarian at gmail dot com.
