Library Board News

State Library Board Meetings

We at the State Library have been experiencing recent staffing changes. The Governor's office has replaced MaryKay Dahlgreen as State Librarian with an interim State Librarian, Caren Agata. Caren joined the library as program manager for Government Information Library Services in January, 2017. Her career as a Librarian has spanned nearly thirty years as academic librarian, department head, supervisor and library director. Caren will be acting as interim State Librarian until a permanent appointment recommendation is made by the Governor's office and been approved by the Senate.

The next Board meeting is scheduled for May 8, 2018 at 9:00 am at the State Library in Salem, Oregon.

Small and Rural Libraries Creating the Future @ OLA

Join panelists from around the state for our session on the Edge Initiative: Small and Rural Libraries Creating the Future. The session will feature three small and rural libraries that have used Edge to identify low-cost and no-cost ways to assess their community needs, improve their library's technology, establish partnerships, and plan for the future. The panelists will share how they communicated with their local leaders about how new or improved technology services and programs support their local economy, workforce, and strong communities. Thursday, April 19th, 2pm -  see you there!
