Ready to Read annual reports to stakeholders

Annual Reports

Libraries participating in the Ready to Read grant program submit reports on grant-funded activity December 1 every year. Those reports are compiled into the annual report by State Library staff. The latest annual report is available the first day of the Oregon Legislature convenes in January or February every year.

Outstanding Ready to Read Project Awards 

Every year, State Library staff selects four to six grant-funded projects to be honored with an Outstanding Ready to Read Project Award. State Library staff or State Library Board members present the awards to honored libraries at a city council, county commissioners, or library board meeting or special event.

Best Practice Libraries 

In 2007, the Oregon State Library identified three public library youth services best practices based on findings from the 2006 Statewide Early Literacy Initiative. The three best practices are: summer reading, outreach to underserved youth, and early literacy training for caregivers. The first annual best practices libraries report was published in 2011 to acknowledge libraries that provide all three best practices. Libraries frequently change their programming to reflect community needs and library resources such as staffing and funding.  Therefore the best practice libraries report will be published annually in conjunction with the annual. Many, but not all libraries use grant-funds to support one or more best practice.
