Hello!  I just received the following email from CSLP about the fonts used for the 2010 summer reading programs.  Please note that the slogan on the posters were hand-lettered by the artists, therefore are unavailable.  The recommendation is to just match the best you can, below are some suggestions that include website where you can access the fonts for free.

Good Morning everyone,

In case you have librarians asking for the fonts for the 2010 summer reading slogans here you go!


The fonts used on product for the Make a Splash theme were Grinched (Make a) Countryhouse (Splash) and Bubblegum (READ). The poster type was hand-lettered by the artist, so we just used complimentary fonts for the product. Make Waves products used Stonecross (Make Waves) and Zapfino (at Your Library).

For the Make a Splash manual, Countryhouse was used for the headers and Bubblegum was used for the chapter numbers. New Baskerville was used for the body. For the Make Waves manual, Scratch was used for the headers and New Baskerville was used for the body.

Here are some sites where you can access some of the fonts for FREE.  

Bubblegum       http://www.searchfreefonts.com/free/bubblegum..htm

Countryhouse    http://www.lettersnstuff.com/fonts/fonts.htm

Grinched         http://www.getfreefonts.info/free_font.grinched.html  (this font is awkward to use, as letters tend to mash together, and I tried a few different free downloads and it was the same each time)

Stonecross      http://www.fontriver.com/font/stonecross/
Scratch         http://www.dafont.com/scratch.font
