Oldest OLA Constitution
And yet another gem that I stumbled upon at the Oregon State Library (State of Oregon Library) is the oldest Oregon Library Association (OLA) constitution established around 1942. Our library constitution is modeled after the Washington Library Association (WLA) constitution. I had to chuckle at the .50 cent membership fee that it listed, and I had found another copy in which there was a proposed $1 membership fee. Maybe the Northwest conservative nature won the lower proposed fee because membership fees remained at .50 cents several years after.
