Individual public library employees from member states are encouraged to register. Only registered members have access to the "extras" that will enhance your summer reading program including the online catalog, graphics, signing videos, PSAs and so much more. Register today, and find out what you've been missing!
NOTE: If you are affiliated with a school (librarian, PTA, administrator, teacher, etc.) please contact your local public library for a copy of the School Order form for the 2013 Summer Reading program. If you do not have a local public library please contact Karen Day (866-657-8556)
We want to remind our members that CSLP's official vendor is Upstart/DEMCO (formerly called Highsmith) and they do not make unsolicited calls.We are aware that members have received calls recently from other vendors that attempt to sell products to support the summer reading programs. CSLP has an exclusive arrangement with Upstart that allows us to protect the copyrighted artwork and to receive a licensing fee for the use of CSLP's trademarked slogans, such as "Dig Into Reading." The revenue CSLP receives from its licensing arrangement is an essential source of support for the CSLP program and it is in all members' interest to purchase from our exclusive vendor.
The Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) offers high quality summer reading programs to all libraries across the country. Libraries in Illinois and California are members in part. CSLP offers membership to all Illinois and California public libraries. If you are an Illinois library, please click here. If you are a California library, please click here.
