I thought I'd share an article from The Oregonian which is about yesterday's library celebration at West Orient Middle School in Gresham.  During a school assembly, librarian Erin Fitzpatrick-Bjorn was honored by AASL President Nancy Everhart for having an outstanding library program.  Dr. Everhart is on a Vision Tour and plans to visit an outstanding school library in every state to draw attention to the value and impact of strong school libraries; so far, 36 visits are scheduled.

As an aside, there was also a recent piece by The Oregonian Editorial Board about how public libraries fared in our recent elections.
