The Oregon Library Association is accepting proposals for a Project Manager for the Amo Leer project of the Children's Services Division (CSD) of OLA.

 *   Develop, with input from the Amo Leer Task Force, promotional and training materials for the participating libraries to assist them in utilizing the collections in the best manner possible.  This will include a sticker to place on all materials noting the AMO LEER project.
