Make a Splash—READ!
These certificates are for children and young adults (0-18) who complete your library's summer reading program. They do NOT specify that a child had to read ten books to get the certificate so they will work with whatever type of program you have at your library! But, you should be aware that the press release that was sent out states: "Students may receive a certificate when they have completed their library's summer reading program or read/listened to 10 books between May 15th and September 15th." Therefore, you may have some people bring in a list of 10 books they read/listened to get a certificate without participating in your library's summer reading program. Give these students certificates for completing the Oregon Department of Education's summer reading program.
This year the Oregon Department of Education, Oregon State Library, and Oregon Library Association has again coordinated their efforts to provide a joint Oregon Summer Reading Certificate with funding from the Oregon Education Association. This effort signifies the commitment of schools and libraries to the education of Oregon's youth.

In the past, the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) awarded Summer Reading Certificates for students who read ten books over the summer. The certificates were distributed via education service districts, school librarians, and public libraries. Nothing has changed about this program, except for the certificate. The certificate now has the national Collaborative Summer Library Program artwork on it and is signed by the State Librarian, Jim Scheppke, and the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Susan Castillo.

Public libraries will award Oregon Summer Reading Certificates to youth who complete their summer reading program or who provide a list of the ten books they read over the summer. Libraries are not required to keep records of the names of participating children nor the lists of books they read.
Educators may request hardcopies of the certificates from Stephanie at ode.getready at state.or.us<mailto:ode.getready at state.or.us>.

Thank you for participating in the Oregon Summer Reading Program!
