The 2013-2014 Ready to Read Annual Report<http://www.oregon.gov/osl/LD/Pages/youthsvcs/aboutready.aspx#Annual_Reports> is now available online. The Annual Report indicates the impact Ready to Read grant funded early literacy activities and summer reading programs had on youth 0-14 years old in Oregon. Data included in the Annual Report comes from Ready to Read Final Reports libraries submitted to the State Library December 1, 2014.

The Ready to Read Annual Report also includes the list of libraries implementing all three youth services best practices in 2014<http://www.oregon.gov/osl/LD/Pages/youthsvcs/aboutready.aspx#Best_Practice_Libraries> regardless of funding (data from the Public Library Statistics is used for this).

Congratulations to the five libraries receiving the 2013-2014 Outstanding Ready to Read Project Award<http://www.oregon.gov/osl/LD/Pages/youthsvcs/aboutready.aspx#Outstanding_Projects>! I was particularly impressed to learn that small, rural libraries successfully improved their summer reading programs for 'tweens and teens. This effort may help these libraries engage older teens in summer reading if HB 2479<https://olis.leg.state.or.us/liz/2015R1/Measures/Overview/HB2479> passes, expanding the grant to also include teens 15 years old through seniors in high school.
