Legislative Update

You did it!

Thanks to the calls, emails and office visits, funds were restored to the Ready-to-Read Grant program for the next biennium. The OLA Library Development and Legislative Committee thank all of you who made an effort to tell your story about how you use these state dollars. Now, please thank your state legislators and invite them to the library to read a story, do a puppy show or put on a washable tattoo. They would love to hear from you and get a photo!

Also, a big thanks to our lobbyists, Nan Heim and Amanda Dalton. They are our voice in Salem when we cannot be there.

Janet Webster and Abigail Elder, co-chairs
OLA Library Development and Legislative Committee
