Oregon State Library Press Release

"Katie began her work as the Youth Services Consultant at the Oregon State Library in June of 2006. She did not have years of experience as a youth services librarian but she did have enthusiasm, energy, and imagination. Those three traits, along with the experience she has gained over the last nine years, have contributed to her status as a librarian who has made a significant contribution to library services for children in Oregon.

>From her first days at the State Library, she has demonstrated a commitment to children and to libraries that certainly goes above and beyond the responsibilities of her job. Her tenacity in attending meetings and gatherings that might yield a valuable partnership is legendary, as is her ability to communicate important information to library staff in Oregon that can then be used to improve library services at the local level.

Her most impressive accomplishments, in a long list of accomplishments, include her work with the Commission on Children and Families, with funding from the Oregon Community Foundation and the Paul G. Allen Foundation, to bring "Every Child Ready to Read at Your Library" training to all corners of the Oregon. She was instrumental in securing the funding and worked tirelessly with the project manager to assure an excellent learning experience for all involved. She has also become an integral member of the youth serving divisions of the Oregon Library Association. Her participation in the Collaborative Summer Library Program goes above and beyond representing Oregon. She has persisted in speaking up at meetings to encourage changes that affect every child who participates in summer reading.

Katie is deeply committed to excellent library service for children and their caregivers and is an excellent spokesperson for that in all corners of our state."

- MaryKay Dahlgreen, State Librarian
