Growing Literacy in Oregon
The mission of the Oregon State Literacy Association (OSLA) is to be a driving force for the development of literacy in our schools and communities and to foster a lifelong love of reading.
"OSLA strives to be a part of the development of world-wide efforts to educate every individual to live a life informed by the great ideas available through reading."
