Hello! Below is the email the State Librarian sent all public library directors yesterday regarding Ready to Read Grant funding for the 2013-2014 budget. After the State Librarian shares the projected Ready to Read grants for 2013-14 with directors, then I will forward that out on this listserv as well so you will have the numbers you need to plan ahead.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Subject: [PL-Directors] Governor's Recommended Budget and Ready to Read

Hello all-

The Governor’s Recommended Budget was released last Friday and it contains good news for the Ready to Read Grant program. We requested and he is recommending to the Legislature that the allocation for 2013-2014 be increased to include 15 – 17 year olds. We requested this in support of the Governor’s 40-40-20 goal<http://www.oregonbusinessplan.org/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=ItZuAeICLaI%3D&tabid=99> and the OregonReads<http://www.oregon.gov/gov/docs/OEIB/1a1aOReads.pdf> initiative.  I don’t have exact numbers just yet, our business manager is working on getting me a precise number.  When we get that we will send out a chart of anticipated Ready to Read grants in 2013-14.

Now, remember that this budget goes through the Legislative process in 2013 before the budget is  approved. So, don’t bet the farm on this. The other caveat is that the State Library has been instructed to re-organize and the second year of our 13-15 budget has not been allocated pending that re-organization.

For a bit more detail see my blog post: https://snippetsfromthestatelibrarian.wordpress.com/

If you have questions or concerns please let me know.
