The Oregon Association of School Libraries invites all educators and library staff to join us for the Fall Conference as we look clearly with "20/20 Vision" toward the future of school libraries.

Set your sights on the dramatic beauty of the South Coast of Oregon at The Mill Casino where you’ll hear a visionary keynote speaker, enjoy authors, attend sessions, and visit with vendors.

OASL is proud to present "An Evening with children's author/illustrator Judy Schachner" of SkippyJon Jones fame on Friday evening and an "Awards and an evening with YA author William Ritter" on Saturday evening. The conference will host keynote speaker Mark Ray, WA State Librarian and Teacher of the Year, during Saturday's lunch. The conference also includes a delightful author Author Round Table breakfast, sponsored by GALE, to kick off Saturday morning.  Other Oregon authors we are pleased to include are Arwen Elys Dayton, April Henry, Emily Whitman, Bonnie Jensen Cox, Bryn Flemming, and Dawn Prochovnic.

We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
