The Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) Advisory Council is appointed by the State Library Board to advise the Board on matters concerning the administration of LSTA funding and support for Oregon libraries, as alloted to Oregon by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
The LSTA Advisory Council typically meets twice a year, in the early spring and late summer/early fall. A press release with an agenda is issued at least 10 days before all meetings in accordance with Oregon’s open meeting laws. Each agenda has a time for public comment. All meetings are open to the public. The next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, September 12, 2019, at the Cornelius Public Library in Cornelius, Oregon.
The 13 council members are elected by the Board to represent public, academic, special, and school libraries, as well as library users, and underserved or under-represented persons. Terms are for three years. Nominations to fill upcoming vacancies are solicited in late summer / early fall
via the Libs-Or mailing list and the State Library’s email newsletter. Nominations may also be made to Library Support and Development Services staff, or to the Chair of the State Library Board. Interested parties may contact Ross Fuqua
at 503-378-5027 for more information.
