Dear Public Library Directors,
I am pleased to announce that every central library, library branch, and bookmobile in Oregon will be receiving, free of charge, one copy of Bat 6 by Virginia Euwer Wolff and one copy of Apples to Oregon by Deborah Hopkinson thanks to a generous grant from the Starseed Foundation. These books are the juvenile titles for Oregon Reads 2009, the first statewide community reading program in Oregon taking place January 2009 – April 2009. I am also pleased to announce that Stubborn Twig has arrived and your copies are ready to be distributed or picked up! Read on for details:
Attached is a list of how many copies of Stubborn Twig libraries are receiving; you will need this information to determine how to get your books. If your library is not on the attached list your library did not order copies of Stubborn Twig. If you would like copies of Stubborn Twig by Lauren Kessler you can purchase remainders of the out-of-print edition for a reduced price on the OLA website (www.olaweb.org). The new edition, with the Oregon Reads 2009 logo and special introduction from Governor Ted Kulongoski, is now available to purchase from vendors.
Libraries receiving 11 or more copies of Stubborn Twig will pick up their copies of Bat 6 and Apples to Oregon at the State Library when they come to pick up their copies of Stubborn Twig. Please schedule a time to pick up your books with Joel Henderson (joel.henderson at state.or.us). You must contact Joel at least one day prior to the time you wish to pick up your books; do not assume your books will be available to pick up until you get a confirmation from Joel stating he has you on his schedule. Please provide your full contact information so Joel can contact you to confirm your pick up time. The State Library cannot guarantee that you will be able to pick up your books if you come to pick them up without an appointment.
Libraries receiving 10 or fewer copies of Stubborn Twig will have their copies of Bat 6 and Apples to Oregon sent with their copies of Stubborn Twig to thier central library via courier or US Postal Service. Your books are in the process of being shipped, if you don’t receive them the week before Thanksgiving please contact Joel Henderson (joel.henderson at state.or.us).
We encourage you to carpool or partner with other libraries in your area to pick up your books. For example, public and academic libraries in Umatilla County and Baker County may want to send one person to pick up all the orders for libraries in those two counties. There is a Library Director meeting at the State Library on November 17. There is also an SDLAC meeting at the State Library on November 5th. Check you calendars for other meeting you may have in Salem, ask your staff or friends and relatives if they are planning a trip to Salem and could pick up your books. Most orders will easily fit in the back seat or trunk of a sedan.
If you have any questions about how your library will get their books please contact Joel Henderson (joel.henderson at state.or.us).
