The Skillset Podcast #3: Politics and Libraries with EveryLibrary’s John Chrastka

With the election days away, this is the perfect time to remember that public libraries exist in a political as well as civic space. In this episode, hosts David Lankes and Nicole Cooke talk to John Chrastka, head of EveryLibrary, the country’s only political action committee for libraries, who points out that for 364 days of the year librarians are the lovely people who help us. But on election day, they are candidates who must stand up for themselves and their communities.
