Please join the OLA International Roundtable Horner Exchange committee in congratulating our 2016 Horner Exchange delegates:
The OLA IRRT Horner Exchange committee looks forward to hosting four delegates from the Fujian Provincial Library in late spring of 2016.
Our delegates will travel to the Fujian Province in late October or early November. The delegates will be joined by Mary Kay Dahlgreen, State Librarian at the Oregon State Library, and Rosalind Wang, retired, Multnomah County Libraries and Portland State University, during part of the Exchange visit, so we'll have quite an impressive group of Oregon librarians visiting the Fujian Province next fall.
The Horner Library Staff Exchange Project is an exchange of library staff between the Fujian Province, China, and Oregon, for the purpose of sharing professional knowledge about library and information science. It was established through a generous gift by the late Dr. Layton Horner to the Oregon State Library and continues through a relationship with the Oregon Library Association International Relations Roundtable. Our international partners are the Fujian Provincial Library and the Fujian Library Association. Fujian is Oregon’s sister province in China, and the Fujian Provincial Library maintains a sister library relationship with the Oregon State Library. The 2013 blog and 2010 blog provide a look into the most recent trips to the Fujian Province libraries.
