The EveryLibrary Institute NFP's purpose is to conduct research, writing, publishing, and related activities concerning public, academic, and school libraries in the United States.

The EveryLibrary Institute NFP operates exclusively for educational and charitable purposes, including primarily research, writing, publishing and related activities concerning public, academic, and school libraries in the United States for the purpose of public education, strengthening the civic life of communities, bridging social and societal gaps, and for the future of the profession of librarianship. It is chartered in the state of Illinois as a non-profit corporation and received its 501(c)3 nonprofit designation as a charitable organization in June 2018.

The EveryLibrary Institute is a companion organization to EveryLibrary, the first national political action committee for libraries. The EveryLibrary Institute’s mission of research, training librarians, and programmatic support for libraries is closely aligned with EveryLibrary’s 501(c)4 mission of building voter support for libraries.

The EveryLibrary Institute NFP is chartered in the State of Illinois as a nonprofit corporation and has received its 501c3 designation from the IRS. The EveryLibrary Institute is ready to partner with foundations, philanthropic organizations, associations, non-profits, and academic institutions to enhance public perception of libraries and librarianship through research-driven direct engagement across American society. We hope to see benefits for library funding accrue at the ballot box, and at all levels of government, from our partnership-driven work.
