Hi everyone,

This is just a friendly reminder that there will be town halls happening this week and one in a couple of weeks to help prioritize statewide library funding.

Also, please note that while the session on 12/2 at 3.30 is limited to school library staff only, school library folks are welcome to attend any of the other sessions, too.

** Please forgive cross-postings **

In addition to the survey<https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ORLSTAeval21> I messaged about last week, the State Library is also conducting virtual town hall meetings for library folks such as yourselves to discuss to the needs and priorities of Oregon libraries and the people they serve. The surveys and town halls will help us prioritize how we spend Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds over the next five years.

So please take a moment to mark your calendars for the virtual town halls! They offer the opportunity to share your thoughts with our evaluation team at Constructive Disruption<https://www.constructivedisruption.info/>, discuss with your colleagues how the State Library can support you, and offer ideas for our work ahead. These town halls are open to all library staff, volunteers, board members, and supporters of all classifications in all kinds of libraries: school, public, academic, special, tribal, county law libraries, etc.. All you need to participate is access to Zoom, whether on a computer or a phone; access to a webcam is helpful, but not required. We will be using the breakout group feature. The dates for the town halls are:
