More opportunities to show what you know

The busy folks behind the Oregon Encyclopedia have set up more community meetings for Oregonians to come forward and share their knowledge about local history. Learn more about the project and about local history resources in your area at the following events:
Community Meetings at the North Bend, Holgate (Portland), Shaw (Klamath), Newberg, and Baker City Public libraries:

Learn about the valuable historical resources available at your regional library and contribute your knowledge of local history to the Oregon Encyclopedia at one of the upcoming community meetings (listed below). Each meeting includes an overview of the Oregon Encyclopedia, a discussion on how to write an Oregon Encyclopedia entry and information on library resources that support the research and writing of local history.
