Dear Public Library Director:

The Oregon State Library is pleased to announce that it is partnering with the Oregon College Savings Plan in the State Treasurer’s Office to offer a contest for the 2010 Summer Reading Program.  The contest is called “Dive into Saving for College,” and it encourages parents to sign up their children for your summer reading program.  It also gives 15 parents a chance to win a $1,000 Oregon College Savings Plan account and helps families become aware of the need and opportunities to start saving for college today.  As an added bonus, library branches indicated on the winning entries will also win $500 in cash toward future summer reading programs.

We hope your library will choose to participate this year.  This is a program where both libraries and patrons can win!

Getting your library involved in the contest is simple.  We are sending contest materials to your library next week. The rest is easy:

1.     Children sign up for your summer reading program.

2.     Your library staff will give parents a “Dive into Saving for College” entry form and encourage them to fill it out for a chance to win $1,000 towards their child’s future education.  Please make readily available the Oregon College Savings brochures along with the contest entry form.*

3.     Parents complete the postage-paid entry card and drop it in the mail for entry in the drawing.  Only one entry per child, please.

4.     If a child from your library wins the $1,000 College Savings Plan account, your library will win $500 cash toward future summer reading programs.

If you have any questions please contact Katie Anderson at katie.anderson at state.or.us or 503-378-2528. Please encourage families to “Dive into Saving for College!”

Thank you for your participation.
