The Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP), is a consortium of public libraries with a presence in all fifty states, the District of Columbia, American Samoa, Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Guam, Mariana Islands and Micronesia. We work together to provide high-quality summer reading program materials for children, teens, and adults to our member libraries. CSLP produces themes, manuals and works with artists and vendors to produce materials designed for our members to use. Participating libraries can purchase program manuals, posters, reading logs, bookmarks, certificates, and a variety of reading incentives. The result is unified and high-quality promotional and programming products for its 16,000 member libraries. Members have access to the same artwork, incentives, and publicity in addition to an extensive manual of programming and promotional ideas, aimed to promote summer reading for all ages.
The working theme for 2020 will be Fairytales, Mythology, Fantasy. The Collaborative is pleased to work together on behalf of children, teens and adults and looks forward to exploring, with you, ways in which we can help improve the lives of all summer reading participants.
There are three Requests for Proposals (RFP) issued for the 2020 program year. Bids may be submitted for one, two, or all three requests.
