Hi! The proposed changes to the Ready to Read Grant are included in the Governor's Budget which was released today. Please read the email below for details. This is the first step in the legislative process. We will continue to keep you posted.

If you missed the Reimagining Ready to Read Road Show last spring, then you have one more chance to attend. The Ready to Read Road show will be one of the sessions at the Oregon Library Association's Conference 2015<http://www.olaweb.org/ola-conference-2015>. At this session I will review the proposed changes to the Ready to Read Grant by walking through what will be the new grant application and new report form if the changes are passed by the legislature. Attached is the handout I distributed at the Road Show with a brief overview.

Subject: [AL-Directors] Governor's Budget Released

Greetings Library Directors:

The Governor released his Recommended Budget for the 2015-2017 biennium this morning and I wanted to share a couple of items with you:

*         A recommended  increase of  $139,769 in the Ready to Read/Reading for Success grant program that will expand the program to include 15-17 years olds and raise the minimum grant to $1,200.

*         Shift a State Library Specialist  1 position from donation funding to general fund

As most of you know, the next step will be to present our budget request to the Legislature. We will do that before a subcommittee of the Joint Ways and Means Committee during the regular Legislative session coming up in 2015.

This is a great improvement over the Governor's Recommended Budget for the State Library in  2013-2015. I appreciate all the support the State Library has received from the library community.

I will keep you posted as we move through the budget process.

Please contact me if you have questions or concerns.


Full Recommended Budget is available at: http://www.oregon.gov/gov/priorities/pages/budget.aspx  State Library is on page I 335
