Joining CSLP just got easier!

All public libraries can join CSLP, and odds are your library is already a member!

Why join CSLP?

If your library is located in the states of AK, CA, CT, IA, IL, MA, MN, OR, or RI; simply place your order at the CSLP store, and a $20 membership fee will be added to your cart at check out. It is that easy!

If your state was not listed in the above paragraph, you are already a member and the annual membership fee for the program has already been paid by your state library.

Interested in joining as a State? The cost for Statewide membership is a base rate of $65, plus $2 for each library. Membership applies to all libraries in your state.  Contact Melissa Hooke at or call 866-657-8556 to begin the application process.


Your membership fee covers administrative costs for the year and allows you to benefit from CSLP’s group purchasing power and fantastic programming ideas and resources for all age groups. Membership also allows the use of artwork and illustrations created by nationally known, award winning artists! These resources can be used year round for any and all library programs!
