Summer Reading Programs

North Dakota participates in the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP). CSLP is a nonprofit, charitable organization that supports literacy, education and science through summer reading events in public libraries across the United States. CSLP works to develop interest in reading and library use. This includes development and implementation of summer reading programs used nationwide, public service announcements, and other activities which promote reading and library use. Every year, CSLP publishes a themed summer reading manual, which contains valuable information for planning, promoting, and hosting a successful summer reading program.

2022 Summer Reading

Whether you've done a summer reading program for decades or whether you're planning to host your very first program, this workshop will provide opportunities to learn, discuss, and share ideas for the 2022 summer reading program. As one attendee put it: "I'm so glad to have attended the workshop. It got me excited and motivated to start planning my summer reading program!"
