Dear Colleagues,

The Oregon Library Association has been advocating for Oregon House Bill 2243, which updates the current statutory definition of "Public Library".  It is in need of revision to better reflect the changing landscape of libraries and to ensure exceptional public library services for all Oregonians.

Tomorrow the Senate Business and General Government Committee has a hearing scheduled on HB 2243.  OLA representatives will attend to testify.  Show your support by quickly sending emails to committee members via the link below:


The issue brief for HB 2243<https://www.olaweb.org/assets/Legislative/LegDay/SupportHB2243_OLA_FINAL_2.3.2019.pdf> is available on the OLA Library Development and Legislation Committee website<https://www.olaweb.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=199>. Please let me know if you have any questions and thank you for supporting OLA and Oregon libraries!

Elaine Hirsch
Library Development and Legislation Committee
OLA VP/President-elect
