The online summer reading catalog is now available!


Things to remember:

·         The summer reading catalog and manual are only available to Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) members. All public, volunteer, and tribal libraries in Oregon are CSLP members. School libraries may partner with their local public, volunteer, or tribal library to access CSLP summer reading materials.

·         You can pick up your 2013 summer reading manual at the OLA’s Children’s Services Division (CSD) Fall Workshop on October 27th at Hood River County Library. If you don’t pick it up, then the CSD Summer Reading Chair, Jessica Marie, will mail it to your library by the end of December. Manuals will be addressed to your library’s Ready to Read Grant key contact or Director.

o   Register to attend the CSD Fall Workshop:

·         Order early! Upstart uses the number of early orders to estimate how many total products to produce. If you have been frustrated because items you want run out before summer even starts, that’s because not enough libraries ordered those items early. Want to be sure to get that hot item? Order early!
