Welcome to Sched for the 2017 OLA Annual Conference!

Patrick Provant

Multnomah County Library - Midland
Library Supervisor
Portland, Oregon
At an especially good diversity conference, Patrick found this out: even though he he happens to be a straight, cisgender white male, he is not the standard that all others are diverse from. This turned out to be an eye-opener for someone who never imagined that he, too was diverse. A writer, bread baker, ex-farmer, dad, superhero fan, geology nut and gamer, Patrick lives in Portland and is Supervisor of the Midland Regional Library.
