Details about the Oregon Summer Reading Certificates:

In 2007 the Oregon Department of Education, Oregon State Library, and Oregon Library Association coordinated their efforts to create a joint Oregon Summer Reading Certificate with funding from the Oregon Education Association. The joint certificate has the national Collaborative Summer Library Program<http://www.cslpreads.org/> artwork on it and is signed by the State Librarian and the State Superintendent of Public Instruction. This effort signifies the commitment of schools and libraries to the education of Oregon's youth.

The winning certificates will be available in English and Spanish to download and print from the Oregon summer reading website<http://www.oregon.gov/OSL/LD/youthsvcs/oregon.srp.certificate.shtml> starting in June 2012.  If you want hard copies, please read the following for details:

PUBLIC LIBRARIES:  You already ordered hard copies of the 2012 summer reading certificates when you completed the 2011 Summer Reading Survey in September.  Certificates should be shipped to you at the end of May 2012 if everything goes as planned.

SCHOOL LIBRARIES: The email announcing the winning certificates will also include information for ordering of hard copies of the certificates.  Please start thinking now about how many children's certificates in English and Spanish and how many teen certificates in English and Spanish you will need so you are prepared when online ordering is available in March.  Remember, these certificates are FREE!
