Summer Survey

Summer Reading

The Summer Reading program encourages children, youth and families to continue reading and continue to develop life long learning skills. To support the Summer Reading program, the Connecticut State Library is a member of the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP).

The Collaborative Summer Library Program's Libraries and Summer Food Guide has been released!  It includes a downloadable fact sheet, as well.  

CSLP Manuals are now available online!  Public libraries: go to www.cslpreads.org to login and access your copy now.

CSLP's Organizational Coordinator, Luke Kralik, offers public library staff engaging CSLP Tutorials on various topics, such as downloading the artwork as a zip file!
