Credits


Many people along the way have contributed to the success of Plinkit. First and foremost, thanks go to Eva Miller, the original designer and creator of Plinkit and to the Multnomah County Library who originally sponsored the grant that funded the original project.

Special thanks to the Plone community at large who have been supportive of this project in so many ways.

Plinkit owes a big "Thank You" to the Oregon Department of Education who contributed the original content for the "Kid's Corner", "Middle Schoolers", and "High Schoolers" section of the Plinkit template. Content for these sections was derived from Castillo's Corner and is locally maintained by your public library.

Sharon Morris (Colorado State Library) also contributed additional content for the Español section the Homework and Research Sites page.

The Oregon Plinkit Project participates in the Plinkit Collaborative -- a group of several states that use localized versions of Plinkit for their public libraries. Oregon libraries using Plinkit benefit greatly through the Oregon State Library's work with a cooperative group of librarians, libraries, and resources for further Plinkit development.

And last but not least, Plinkit would not exist if it were not for the Institute of Museum and Library Services which funds Plinkit (in whole or in part) through the Library Services and Technology Act.

THE LIBRARY IS MOVING!!Yes, folks, it's finally happening! Our new place is almost finished. Thus, WE WILL BE CLOSING on March 28th and opening our brand new doors on APRIL 25th!!!! Our Grand Opening will occur on June 3rd. 

  • The library is currently working with City Hall to Support Our Soldiers! Want to help? Drop off donations at the library. All items collected will be sent to the SOS organization and combined to make care packages for our military men and women who are serving overseas. See the SOS website for more information and requested donations.
  • Our next book club meeting will be on April 26th to discuss the novel GEMINI by Carol Cassella. All are welcome to attend, even if you haven't read the book!
  • Check out our fundraising progress for the new library relocation by making a contribution at our donation site, or by clicking here to see how much we've raised so far! 

FUNDRAISING UPDATE!

We have reached our short-term goal of $500! Thank you so much for your generosity, and remember your donations are being matched by Finley Chapel and Event Center and a supportive long-time library patron (this means we have reached $1,500 in total donations for this challenge)!

Goal Achieved!

All donations will be applied to furnishing the new library with items we desperately need! If you'd like to contribute, please consider donating in person or through our website: https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/krumfriendsofthelibrary

We broke ground on the new library!

Thanks to all who came to show support for the groundbreaking! A big thank you goes to our local Tudy's Kitchen for providing us with breakfast tacos for the event.

We are thankful for the large amount of interest that has been shown in this project by you, the patrons, and we will keep you updated on the new building's progress. To make a donation to the new library, click here.
