Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) assistance:
Every year, CSLP produces a national reading program that spans early literacy through adults around a particular theme. Libraries may order posters, bookmarks, reading logs, completion certificates and other basic marketing supplies from NCKLS each fall. Materials are delivered by courier or the book van.
Each library receives a programming manual that provides craft and program ideas around the selected theme. The manual comes in mulitple formats including on-line and print.
