National Teen Lock-in: Rock Your World 2018!
Committee members needed: Help improve the quality of health programming at public libraries!
Are you, or a librarian you know, passionate about creating health related programming for their library? If so, we need your help!
CSLP is partnering with the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) to produce a unique, space themed, health programming addendum to the 2019 program manual. NNLM is dedicating two of their staff to this project, with the hopes of increasing the role public libraries play in sharing health related information within their communities.
To make sure this project is a success, we will be creating an Ad Hoc committee to support our colleagues at the NNLM. The committee will meet through video conferencing once a month, and be active from March through August. The committee’s charge is as follows:
The NNLM Health Programming Manual Addendum Ad Hoc Committee is charged with assisting with coordination for development of the NNLM Health Programming Manual Addendum. The Ad Hoc Committee is responsible for contributing content to the Addendum as well as vetting, testing, revising and improving the ideas that are submitted. The Ad Hoc Committee works closely with representatives from the NNLM to create an organized, creative and useful manual.
If this is something that sounds interesting to you, or someone you know, please send an email to Luke Kralik at firstname.lastname@example.org

CSLP Annual Meeting – Denver, Colorado – April 9 – 12, 2018
Spotlight on a Reading Superstar!
As any teacher will tell you, getting children to write can be a difficult challenge. There are many different skills to master, and there is always the prickly issue of capturing their interest. This is why Jake Marcionette’s story is so wonderful.
Encourage to write on a daily basis since he was very young, Jake is the youngest author to ever appear on the New York Time’s Best Sellers list with his semi-autobiographical book “Just Jake”. Taking it upon himself to find an agent and have his book published, Jake is truly an inspiration to both aspiring and reluctant young writers. “I think I’m a pretty good writer and I knew I had a message to tell people.”
If there a young reader (or writer) making a big difference in your state, please let us know! We would love to share these inspirational stories with the entire CSLP membership!
