Hi! I just learned about the following new national CSLP summer reading partner.  I know the timing is bad, but don’t panic! This is optional—like most, if not all national CSLP summer reading partnerships. If you are interested in using CWIST this summer, be sure to use library policy to review this resources to make sure it’s a good fit for your community.

CSLP is excited to announce the new partnership with CWIST, a parent-drive motivational system where kids embark on adventures with the goal of earning a wish once they’ve completed a fun, educational project.
CWIST Services for CSLP Members

•         cwist will create a short introduction video for libraries that describes the value of cwist to their library.

o   The video will describe how cwist works for families of K-5 readers.

o   It will briefly describe how a parent can easily sign in and assign reading challenges that will add fun and educational extensions to the reading the child does over the summer

•         for each library-system that provides cwist with their summer reading lists, cwist will create challenges (or update last years) for each grouping of books they support. In some cases lists are grouped by grade or multiple grades, and in others there is one large list; cwist will reflect that library’s grouping.

o   The challenge will be CSLP branded inside the challenge itself

o   The challenge will have links to the unique list for the library system

o   The challenge main image will be the logo of the supported library

•         Parents will be able to sign up their families for free

•         Families will have access to a list of retail and free incentives to use as goals for completing the challenges.

CSLP membership dues and manual fees are paid for by the State Library with LSTA funds.
