Great action on the Workforce Investment Act, finally!
Posted on May 23, 2014 by Emily Sheketoff

The House and Senate have drafted a bill on workforce
which acknowledges the work libraries do to help the public gain important
employment skills and find jobs?and the legislation allows libraries to be
paid for these efforts.

Over many years, our congressional library champions have
with ALA members to include language that would include libraries in
the funding for employment help in any workforce legislation. Senator Jack
Reed (D-RI) and Representative Rush Holt (D-NJ) introduced the Workforce
Investment in Local Libraries
amendment<http://www.districtdispatch.org/tag/will-act/>to re-enforce
the idea that libraries were helping the public find work and
their efforts needed to be part of any Workforce bill moving forward.
Thanks to their continuous work, libraries are part of this

We hope the Senate will take up this House-Senate WIA Agreement for a vote
in mid-to-late June, then it would move to the House. Sign
up<http://ala.org/takeaction>for our Legislative Action Center for
advocacy opportunities to help push
this legislation forward.

Senator Ron Wyden to receive Intellectual Freedom Champion award, host net 
neutrality discussion May 28 at Portland?s Central Library

PORTLAND, Ore. ? May 27, 2014 ? On Wednesday, United States Senator Ron 
Wyden will be presented with the Oregon Library Association?s 2014 
Intellectual Freedom Champion of the Year Award. Following that, Senator 
Wyden will host a roundtable discussion on the subject of net neutrality 
with members of the local technology start-up community and public library 
leaders. Members of the media are invited to attend.

Proceedings will begin at 2 pm in the US Bank Room at Central Library, 801 
SW 10th Ave. with the presentation of the award. The award is granted by the 
Intellectual Freedom Committee of the Oregon Library Association to 
recognize ?the contribution made by an individual or institution that has 
actively promoted or defended intellectual freedom in Oregon.? The Oregon 
Library Association selected Senator Wyden in recognition of his ?forceful 
and sustained campaign to protect the privacy rights of Americans and others 
around the world in relationship to government surveillance.?

Following the award, Senator Wyden will host a roundtable discussion on the 
subject of net neutrality, the idea that all Internet traffic travels at the 
same speed. Senator Wyden?s position is that Big Cable companies want to end 
net neutrality by dividing the Internet into fast and slow lanes, harming 
individuals and businesses alike. Joining Senator Wyden for the discussion 
will be Multnomah County Library Director Vailey Oehlke (on behalf of the 
Public Library Association); Michael Sherrod, Director, TCU/Coleman 
Entrepreneurship Fellows Program at Texas Christian University and member of 
the Executive Board of the Urban Libraries Council; Puppet Labs CEO/Founder 
Luke Kanies; and Antony Falco, Founder at Orchestrate.io.

?As the son of a librarian, I know that libraries play a vital role in 
promoting a thriving marketplace of free speech and free thought,? said 
Senator Wyden. ?The Oregon Library Association has an especially 
distinguished record of championing privacy and intellectual freedom, which 
is why this award really is a special honor. I am proud to stand with the 
Oregon Library Association to continue fighting against overreaching 
government surveillance, plans to end to a competitive, open Internet, and 
other threats to our freedom.?

Nominations close on Friday, June 13. I hope to hear from many of you before 
The Public Library Division of OLA represents all public libraries in 
Oregon. The purpose of the PLD is to promote public library service and 
development, to promote the potential for increasing cooperation among 
public libraries, to represent the interests and concerns of public 
libraries in relation to the Oregon Library Association and the Oregon State 
Library and to develop legislative priorities for public libraries and other 
issues as may be pertinent to the Division.
We are currently seeking candidates for the PLD Executive Board for the 
2014-2015 year. New positions will begin in September 2014 and are open to 
members of OLA who support the purposes of the Division. We are seeking 
nominees for two Director-at-Large positions (2 year terms), Secretary (1 
year term) and Vice Chair/Chair Elect (3 year term). For more information 
about the responsibilities of these positions, please visit 
Joining the PLD Executive Board is a great way to meet new people and 
network with public library staff from around the state. Current Board 
members come from the Oregon coast, central Oregon, the Willamette Valley 
and the Portland Metro area.
Please contact me (pamn at wccls.org<mailto:pamn at wccls.org>) by June 13, 
specifying the Board position you are interested in. Remember, you must be a 
member of OLA and the Public Library Division to be considered. Elections 
will be held in July.
Looking forward to hearing from many of you!
