FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

STATE LIBRARY OF OREGON ANNOUNCES GRANT PROJECT OF THE YEAR

The Springfield Public Library project For Every Student, A Library, was awarded LSTA Project of the Year by the State Library of Oregon on Monday, Jan. 7.


"The State Library Board recognizes Springfield Public Library for their exceptional project, For Every Student, A Library," Fuqua said. "Through a partnership with Springfield Public Schools, the Springfield Public Library has exhibited an innovative way to increase access to local library services for a significant population of previously unserved families with school-age children, while also supporting local K-12 curriculum."

The LSTA Advisory Council and State Library Board recognize the creativity and hard work demonstrated by Springfield Public Library to extend local library service to previously unserved families within the Springfield Public Schools district boundaries. Through partnerships with Springfield Public Schools and local organizations, Springfield Public Library developed a sustainable model to serve this population into the future. Interim State Librarian Caren Agata presented the award to Springfield Public Library Director Emily David at the Springfield City Council meeting Jan. 7.
