Many of you requested that I send out a reminder about what statistics you will be asked to report on for the 2015 summer reading statistics and ordering survey so you can be sure you're collecting the right data this summer. Attached is a copy of statistics and ordering survey so you know what all the questions are in advance. The link to the actual survey will be emailed out to library directors in September to ensure that only one person per library fills out the survey. The result of the 2015 summer reading statistics and ordering survey will be compiled into the 6th Annual Summer Reading Brief<http://www.oregon.gov/osl/LD/Pages/youthsvcs/oregon.srp.certificate.aspx#Oregon_Summer_Reading_Statistics>.
The survey has changed a lot so please be sure to look at the attachment!
In response to your suggestions, I made several changes to the summer reading statistics survey this year. Primarily, all age ranges will be treated equal! You'll be asked to report the same statistics for young children, elementary school-age children, teens, and adults.
Please keep in mind that Oregon libraries are at liberty to implement the summer reading program in whatever way works best for their communities therefore libraries may not track all of these statistics-that's okay, you don't have to report on anything you don't do.
Please let me know if you have any questions.

PS: This email was sent to all Public Library Directors so they know what statistics you'll be collecting this summer.
