Following a successful pilot period that began in May, the Everett Public Library is pleased to announce its continued partnership with Community Health Center of Snohomish County, Volunteers of America/211 Outreach, and Sea Mar Community Health Centers. Every Monday from 1-4:30 p.m., representatives from these agencies will be available in the lobby of the Main Library, 2702 Hoyt Ave, Everett. On the third Tuesday of each month, these same agencies will be in the Evergreen Branch’s meeting room. Together, the three agencies can help people acquire food, clothing, health care (including mental health), health insurance, housing, and much more.

Earlier this year, the library announced its partnership with Snohomish County Legal Services and the Northwest Justice Project, who run a highly utilized legal aid program called Lawyer in the Library. The two agencies help low income individuals, who may speak with an attorney (at no cost) about Medicare/Medicaid/medical debt, disposition of remains, foreclosure, debt/bankruptcy, driver’s license reinstatement, family law, housing issues, or scams. The next Lawyer in the Library session is 2-4 p.m. Wednesday, September 6 at the Main Library. No appointment is necessary.
