Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP)
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.
North Dakota libraries can get free access to the summer reading manual by requesting below.
