It is my pleasure to announced the 2019 Libros for Oregon<https://librosfororegon.wixsite.com/home/> cohort!

Libros for Oregon<https://librosfororegon.wixsite.com/home/> is an initiative to help Oregon libraries, particularly small and/or rural libraries, take advantage of the resources of the  Guadalajara Book Fair<https://www.fil.com.mx/ingles/i_info/i_info_fil.asp> and connect their communities with more great Spanish-language materials and books.

This year's participants -- representing many regions and eight counties of our state, and including both public libraries and (for the first time!) school libraries -- are:

Baker County Library District
Crook County Library
Driftwood Library in Lincoln City
Hermiston High School Library
The International School Library
Jesuit High School
Lincoln County School District
Newberg Library
Newport Library
Oregon City Library
Salem Public Library

With some creative strategizing, and support from library directors, we were able to organize a larger cohort than usual this year. We are excited to help more Oregon libraries build solid Spanish-language collections and connect them with their communities.

(Please feel free to share this announcement, the Libros for Oregon webpage<https://librosfororegon.wixsite.com/home/>, and/or LfO's Facebook link<https://www.facebook.com/Libros4Oregon/> with anyone who might be interested.)
