Home / Submit a Programming Idea

CSLP encourages the collaboration of innovative and age appropriate ideas, resources, and programs through the production of four age based manuals. The manuals include program ideas, booklists, decorations and activities for four age groups, from babies to adults. Since public librarians are our customers for the manual, we want your ideas! You know what will work best in your libraries. Use the form below to submit your idea and any related materials (pictures, worksheets, etc.).
