 **please excuse the cross posting.

The 2008-2009  Ready to Read Annual Report, 2008 -2009 Outstanding Projects, and 2009-2010  Project Descriptions are now available at http://www.oregon.gov/OSL/LD/youthsvcs/aboutready.shtml

The Ready to Read Annual Report is an analysis of the Ready to Read Final Reports submitted to the State Library every December. The State Library has established four metrics that measure the effectiveness of the Ready to Read Grant Program. The metrics provide longitudinal data on public library youth services and public library usage statistics. This data allows public libraries to see how their efforts impact library services to children in Oregon, and serves as a tool for setting local youth service goals.   

Each year the State Library staff recognizes several public libraries for their outstanding Ready to Read Grant projects. The criteria for this recognition are: the library adheres to the original intent of the Ready to Read Grant, focuses on one or more of the three Ready to Read Grant best practices, promotes partnerships both in and out of the library, and creates a project that is replicable in other libraries, or enhances current library services. Libraries recognized for their Outstanding Ready to Read projects in 2008-2009  are:  Astoria Public Library,  Umatilla County Special Library  District,  Forest Grove City Library, and Brownsville Community Library.  

The 2009-2010 Project Descriptions are made available so libraries can learn about youth service activities across the state.  The project descriptions provide ideas for libraries looking for new ways to establish, improve, or expand their services to youth.  Oregon libraries are doing great things in youth services, and we have a lot to learn from each other.
