Dear Librarians and Authors,

I have the privilege of guest-editing the Winter 2017 Oregon Library Association Quarterly. This issue’s theme is Sushi, STEM, or Goat Yoga: Successful Library Programming. Do you have a program your library has been super successful with? Do your millennials need a brief adulting 101 course? How did the mini goats and yoga on the Library lawn turn out for you? Do you think other libraries might enjoy a fantastic program you just did? Do you have a unique hybrid of collaborations that just might spur other libraries on to greatness? Please share! It doesn’t matter if you are an academic, school, private, public library or anything in between. If you have a successful program, we want to hear about it!

The OLAQ is the official publication of the Oregon Library Association. It showcases the work of authors who work in or are interested in Oregon Libraries.

This is an opportunity to have your writing published in a professional journal which is indexed in many library science databases. If you are interested in writing for this issue, please email me a brief, 150-word proposal at
