Hello! The Oregon Reader's Choice Award Committee is looking for new members, including 3 ORA members, 2 CSD members, and 1 OYAN member. Members on this committee have the opportunity to focus their reading on a specific division (grades 3-5, 6-8, or 9-12), decide on the final list of 8 books in their division, create booktalks, potentially co-present at the spring Oregon Library Association Conference, and get to know other people around Oregon who are just as passionate about getting great books into the hands of kids and teens!

One of the great things about being an ORCA committee member is that members are not required to attend any in-person meetings--all of our discussions are through Google docs. However, something to be aware of is that we do a lot of reading, and the reading, online discussions, and preparing for the OLA presentation can make it really busy from February through April.
