GFO’s June 2017 Star – Jackie Olson

Jackie Olson stepped up to help several years ago when the previous Forum Insider editor resigned. She consistently produces an attractive publication filled with interesting content. The Insider’s publication timeline is tight, and many times she receives information at the last minute, and she is always adaptable to making last minute adjustments to the publication before printing. She attends the Board of Director’s meetings in order to become aware of current information so she can keep our readers informed.
Thanks, Jackie!!

Jerry has been the driving force for binding GFO’s periodicals for many years. He patrols the shelves looking for complete years or volumes of periodicals that need binding.

Lately, GFO has had an influx of binding requests, as our collection has been undergoing a re-cataloging and re-organizing project. But this hasn’t stopped Jerry!

Jerry also donates many of the supplies needed for the binding projects he undertakes!

This Week at the GFO…

SATURDAY, MAY 20th
GenTalk 9:30 – 11:30am

Nestled in the floodplain between North Portland and Vancouver, a housing project was built to help house World War II shipyard workers. Its very name, Vanport, is derived from Vancouver and Portland.

When the United States entered the war, the demand for ships and for workers to build those ships became a huge priority. Workers were recruited from all corners of the United States. Portland had a serious lodging shortage, so much so that these workers lived in cars, tents, parks, and whatever shelter could be found. Vanport, built in a little over a year, was a city that did not sleep.

In its heyday, Vanport was the second-largest city in Oregon with a population of over 40,000 residents. But on May 30, 1948, it was a city that disappeared.

This Saturday at the GFO, come hear Zita Podany discuss her book, Vanport, which is part of the Images of America series by Arcadia Publishing, celebrating the history of neighborhoods, towns and cities across the country.
SUNDAY, MAY 21st
Library Work Party 9am – noon

There’s another work party at the GFO library this Sunday for those of you who can make it! There’s lots to do and we’d love to have your help. Doors open at 9am and work usually wraps up around noon. Come for as long or as short as you can. Any time you can share is so invaluable. Hope to see you there.
WEDNESDAY, MAY 24th
Open Late Wednesday Night 9:30am – 8pm

Did you know the GFO Library is open late every Wednesday!? What’s that? You have after-dinner research you want to do or late-evening assistance finding information within one of GFO’s online database subscription sources? NO PROBLEM!! We’re open till 8pm every single Wednesday of the year, barring catastrophes, natural disasters, and holidays.

GFO’s April Star – Doris Cruickshank

The GFO has many damaged books that need rebinding. Our efforts to repair and rebind were far too expensive—until Doris introduced us to the Trappist Abbey Book Bindery in Carlton. She regularly transports books to and from the Book Bindery, and has generously donated to the cost of the rebinding some of the volumes. Doris also tracks books listed in the Library catalog, so we know where they are.

Doris has led the effort of organizing and cataloging GFO’s flat maps (previously boxed and in storage) so patrons can use them.

Many thanks, Doris!!

DID YOU KNOW??? There are 3 (count ’em, folks!) ways to find the GFO calendar on our new website!

Let’s count the ways….
1. The small blue rectangular button at the top right-hand corner of any of the gfo.org webpages, titled appropriately “CALENDAR.”
2. Some scrolling action to the middle of the main gfo.org webpage reveals a lovely circular picture in the middle of the screen, titled “EVENTS.”
3. Some additional scrolling, for the really ambitious, to the very very bottom of any of the gfo.org webpages gives you a bright sky blue band with “Calendar” at the bottom of the sitemap menu on the right-hand side. Again WAY at the bottom, so if you can’t scroll anymore, you’re in the right place!
