Hello Oregon Libraries!

Library workers in Southern Oregon should consider applying for one of the two scholarships offered by the Southern Oregon Library Federation.  This could be a year when folks who normally couldn't "get away" for conferences will find it easier to find an online learning option, so please pass along to staff.
