Wow, this is fantastic news. This is the 2nd SIRS award that Oregon's received that I know about-the Oregon Intellectual Freedom Clearinghouse was honored a while back. Congratulations and appreciation to the Intellectual Freedom Committees of OLA and OASL and ACLU. And every library that presented a Banned Books Week event or display should feel they contributed!

"Celebrate the Freedom to Read" Oregon is the recipient of the 2009 SIRS-ProQuest State and Regional Achievement Award.  For detail go to: http://tiny.cc/VWWBh

Congratulations to the Intellectual Freedom Committees of OLA and OASL and the ACLU of Oregon on your statewide Banned Books Week project.  Thank you for putting together and distributing resources for academic, school, and public libraries across Oregon to use to develop local Banned Books Week activities.  Celebrating Banned Books Week is an important activity for educating people about intellectual freedom rights and the freedom to read.  I hope that this project continues to grow and that we will soon see all Oregon counties participating!
