As part of the Horner Exchange Project, three Oregon librarians are currently traveling to Fujian Province, China, for a three week visit to libraries and cultural centers.  They will be learning about the state of librarianship in public and university libraries as well as giving presentations in their areas of expertise.

If you would like to follow their adventures, Amy Lee (Fort Vancouver Regional Library District), Brandon Barnett (Multnomah County Library) and Nancy Hoover (Marylhurst University) will be blogging about their experiences at http://horner2010.wordpress.com/.

Oregon State Librarian Jim Scheppke is also travelling with the Horner delegates for part of their trip to Fujian Province.

The Horner Library Staff Exchange Project is an exchange of library staff between Fujian Province, China, and Oregon, for the purpose of sharing professional knowledge about library and information science. It was established through a generous gift from the late Dr. Layton Horner to the Oregon State Library, and continues through a partnership between the Oregon State Library and OLA's International Relations Round Table. Our international partners are the Fujian Provincial Library and the Fujian Library Association. Fujian is Oregon's sister province in China and the Fujian Provincial Library maintains a sister library relationship with the Oregon State Library.
