Atlanta, Ga., September 28, 2021: Equinox Open Library Initiative, a trusted leader in open source technology services and support for libraries, is pleased to support the ‘5K Your Way for Libraries' fundraising initiative by EveryLibrary, a nonprofit organization working to ensure stable funding for libraries through advocacy, education, and support. Between September 26, 2021 and October 2, 2021, individuals and teams will raise funds by completing ‘5K' of an activity of their choice, such as running, reading, jumping jacks, and more.

"Libraries in my neighborhood, and all over the country, do so much more than circulate materials," said Felicia Beaudry, Product and Education Specialist with Equinox. "They provide programs that inspire learning and creativity. They assist people with job searches. They connect people with assistance in times of natural disaster. They act as voting precincts. If completing 5K of running, walking, or bicycling can help them continue doing those things, even in a small way, I'm happy to participate and encourage others to do the same."
EveryLibrary supports public, school and college libraries with voter support campaigns which provide funding for library services and ongoing growth. They are a chartered 501(c)4 in the state of Illinois. Donations to the ‘5K Your Way for Libraries' will support libraries nationwide. Learn more at: https://www.everylibrary.org/
"Libraries are a vital and integral part of our communities," said Erica Rohlfs, Senior Implementation Project Manager at Equinox, who is completing 5K of indoor rowing. "Everyone should have equal access to libraries – I am happy to be a part of this fundraiser supporting libraries and EveryLibrary in their important work."
