Our Partners

Network of the National Library of Medicine

CSLP is partnering with the Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM) to help bring outstanding health related programming to public libraries. An Ad Hoc Committee, with members from both organizations, has been formed to create a health focused addendum to the 2019 Summer Reading Program Manual. This addendum will provide programming ideas and resources for summer reading programs, primarily focusing on teen, adult, and family programs.

This partnership is also working on the goal of connecting public libraries to their Regional Medical Libraries. By working together, we will help empower librarians to help build healthier communities.

Brag Tags by School Life

CSLP and School Life share the belief that reading is the key to educational and developmental success. School Life helps build strong independent reading habits by motivating, encouraging, and recognizing reading goals and achievements with Brag Tags®. For 25 years, educators have used Brag Tags by School Life with great success. Students are eager to earn and collect Brag Tags to wear on a ball chain necklace, or hang from backpacks as a proud symbol of accomplishment.


CSLP is partnering with StickTogether to offer two Tails and Tales sticker kits for the 2021 Summer Program. These kits make a great passive activity for your patrons. They can be found here:

How to fit StickTogether into your Summer Reading Program? Use it as an easy, relaxing icebreaker to build excitement at the beginning of the Summer OR use it as a reward for attendance or books read. There are ~4,000 stickers per poster, so you create a reward system that works for your patrons and timing.

Let’s ALL StickTogether to make CSLP 2021 Tails and Tales a community-wide success!

CSLP views partnerships as two organizations working together to achieve a common goal. These collaborations develop organically over time, and allows both sides opportunities to make meaningful contributions. These relationships are mutually beneficial and can be formed to meet long or short term goals.

Our partnership needs change from program year to program year depending on the theme and strategic priorities and are reviewed periodically. If your organization is interested in partnering with CSLP, please send an email to CustServ@cslpreads.org.
