Please excuse the cross-posting...

The State Library and Reimagining Ready to Read task force are looking for feedback from the Oregon library community on a proposal for a public library youth services grant that would replace the existing Ready to Read Grant program. These are the only state funds public libraries in Oregon receive. The purpose of changing the grant program is to better align the distribution of state funds with state education initiatives and library youth services best practices.

Please read the attached draft grant proposal, application, and report form carefully before taking this survey (https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GrantProposalALL) to provide your feedback by Tuesday, March 4th. This is not a quick task and the survey must be completed in one session so please plan your time appropriately. I recommend reading the documents one day, thinking about them for a day or two, and then quickly reviewing the documents again before taking the survey another day.

If you don't work in youth services or for a library that currently receives a Ready to Read Grant, then just skip the questions you don't feel you can answer. We would really like your feedback on how the new grant aligns with education initiatives and how the State Library may distribute state funds to public libraries.

Here are a few additional documents that may be helpful:

*         The State Library's public library youth services best practices: http://orysbestpractices.wordpress.com/

*         OLA's Children's Services Division Youth Services Guidelines: http://www.olaweb.org/assets/documents/csd_guidelines.pdf

*         OLA's Oregon Association of School Libraries' Oregon School Library Standards for information literacy: https://sites.google.com/site/oregonschoollibrarystandards/
