Registration is now open for Gateways 2010, the 16th annual conference of Oregon Library Association's Support Staff Division. https://web.memberclicks.com/mc/quickForm/viewForm.do?orgId=ola&formId=82926  (You can see the whole program on the registration form.)  I'm extremely pleased to be able to say that our "Sweet 16" conference looks to be excellent. I had tough choices to make for every single session.

Past OLA President, Oregon City Library director and strong support staff backer Maureen Cole will be giving the keynote address.

Carolee Harrison of PSU will be leading an all-day book repair workshop.  If you have never attended one of these, or have never been able to attend a hands-on session, get ready for a wonderful experience.  You will learn, and you will reinforce what you learn with expert guidance.  Just what the book doctor ordered.

Other topics include:  On the Front Lines: Support Staff and Intellectual Freedom; Serving Patrons with Disabilities; Treasures from the Vaults: Special Collections in Oregon Libraries; Stable Libraries, Stable Jobs; Author, Author (a session on support staffers pursuing writing careers; and the ever-popular A Day in the Life of a Library Assistant.

Amenities include a breakfast buffet, lunch, basket raffles, and many opportunities to network with your peers.

The conference will be held Friday, July 23 with registration and breakfast from 7:30-8:30, and runs from 7:30 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. at the Salem Conference Center ( http://salemconferencecenter.org/ ).

This is going to be a good one.  I hope to see you there!
