Attention Oregon public library staff who plan and implement the summer reading program at your library:
The Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) wants to get ideas from you about ways they can improve the summer reading manual and other resources they provide to help you plan your summer reading program. If you have ideas about how the summer reading manual and/or CSLP website can better help your library and other libraries, please take this survey by February 20th. If you don’t have any ideas for improving the summer reading resources provided by CSLP, then just delete this email now.
Below is the email from CSLP with more details about the survey and why they are conducting it.
All Oregon public, volunteer, and tribal libraries are members of the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP), and receive a free summer reading manual. To get the most out of your membership, create an account on the CSLP website (http://www.cslpreads.org/) and you will be able to access additional summer reading resources. CSLP membership dues and manual fees are paid for by the State Library with Library Services and Technology Act funds. Summer reading manuals are distributed by OLA’s Children’s Services Division summer reading chair, summer reading feedback and suggestions are collected by OLA’s Young Adult Network CSLP Liaison, and all three of us listed below represent you on CSLP committees and at the CSLP annual meeting.
For more information contact one of your CSLP representatives:

CSLP State Representatives: Please forward this message to the libraries in your state.
Dear CSLP Member Librarians,
CSLP strives to provide member libraries with the highest quality summer library program manual possible. It is important to us to offer useful formats that are both cost-effective and flexible.
In order to keep our content relevant and available via platforms our members regularly use, we need your input. We know the communities and patrons you serve are diverse in so many ways and we are looking to be responsive to your community's unique composition.
Our plan is to deliver a program manual that is genuinely helpful and regularly consulted. Your honest and open answers to these questions will help us know what our members need to plan and present a successful summer library program. Your response is vital for future planning and production of the manuals.
We estimate the survey will take approximately 15 minutes for Member Librarians. Please respond by Saturday, February 20, 2016.
You can find the survey by visiting https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CSLPSurvey2016. If you have any questions about the content of the survey or experience any problems with the survey, please contact Matt McLain, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your time and attention!
