Here is the link<http://youtu.be/-SUZ9-crqzA> to the second part of the OIEB meeting last week that the Governor chaired. His comments about this are during the first minute and a half so no need to fiddle around. Below is my transcription of his most relevant remarks...

"...the energy that was in the room and incredible partnerships ,both public and private, focused on... connecting very young children who might not be otherwise hooked into an early learning program with an early learning program through the public libraries. It was just very elegant and speaks to the tremendous possibilities..." Governor Kitzhaber

The early learning partnership libraries are involved in that the Governor was referring to is Project Ready to Learn which is funded in part by a Library Services and Technology Act competitive grant administered by the State Library. You can learn more about Project Ready to Learn by reading their full grant proposal: http://www.oregon.gov/OSL/LD/LSTA/2013/13-09-4pfull.pdf.

Congratulations to Pendleton Public Library, Hermiston Public Library, La Grande Public Library, Baker County Library, Enterprise Public Library, and Grant County Library for the wonderful work you are doing!
