“This year we held the 4th annual Oregon Reader’s Choice Award, co-sponsored by 3 OLA divisions (OASL, CSD, OYAN), along with the Oregon Reading Association and the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association.
This year there were 2635 students who read the books and voted for for the award. We had about 60 schools participate, representing 23 school districts, the Portland Archdiocese, and independent private schools. We also had 6 public libraries participate, representing 4 library districts. All of the names of the participating institutions will be posted on the OLA website, on the ORCA homepage.”
