Greetings !

Welcome to the web site that keeps Oregon's library community informed about events and issues important to association members, libraries, library trustees, and friends of libraries across the state.

Attention Oregon Library Community

OLA has a Zoom sharing procedure so that members of OLA and/or library-related organizations from the Oregon library community can use OLA's Zoom instances for activities that support the work of Oregon libraries. 

If you have scheduled, or need to schedule, library-related meetings with participants numbering above the amount allowed by the free Zoom version, or are longer than 40 minutes in duration, there is a form available for Zoom scheduling requests on the OLA website.  OLA's instances can accommodate up to 100 participants.  Click here to schedule a virtual meeting.

Shirley Roberts is able to assist with any questions.  [email protected]
