Over thirty libraries want Senator Ron Wyden to visit and provided program information for me to pass on to his office-thank you! You continue to impress me with all the great things you are doing for summer reading. I thought you might like to see what other libraries are doing so I've attached a copy of the list I compiled for Senator Wyden's office.

Unfortunately Senator Wyden won't be able to visit all the libraries on the list, but if he does choose to visit your library... here are a couple talking points to consider mentioning during his visit:


*         Library Services and Technology Act funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services pay for my library's summer reading planning manual and access to other materials we need to implement and promote our summer reading program.

[Reminder: The State Library used federal funds to pay for your library's membership in the national Collaborative Summer Library Program and for your summer reading manual.]



*         We understand the role hunger plays in the lives of low-income families, especially when it comes to learning, so we partner with our local Summer Food Service Program, funded by the United States Department of Agriculture, to __________ .



*         We are doing   _______ to get more underserved youth to participate in our summer reading program because we know they are most at risk of summer learning loss.



*         Last year, our summer reading evaluation indicated that _____% of the youth maintained or improved their reading skills as a result of participating in our summer reading program.



*         If our library had more support for summer reading, we would like to do ______ to increase our impact on summer learning loss in our community.

Thank you for all your hard work!

Subject: Do you want Senator Wyden to visit? Let me know by 7/13
Importance: High

Last week State Library MaryKay Dahlgreen visited Senator Ron Wyden's office in Washington D.C. Senator Wyden is a summer learning advocate and is interested in visiting all types of summer learning programs, including public library summer reading programs, while he's home this summer. MaryKay was asked to submit a list of summer reading activities at public libraries to the Senator's office.

If you would like Senator Wyden to consider visiting a summer reading activity, program, or event at your library this summer, please send me the following information by the end of the day on Wednesday, July 13th.

*         The name, date, and time of one summer reading activity, program, or event

*         One short sentence describing the activity, program, or event

*         An estimated number of people you think will attend the event (we know this is hard to anticipate so a best guess is fine!)

*         The name and contact information of the person at your library who Senator Wyden's office should contact to schedule a visit

MaryKay and I would like to send a list of public library summer reading programs to Senator Wyden's office by the end of this week. Senator Wyden and his staff will use the list to decide which library or libraries to visit so it isn't guaranteed that he'll actually visit your library if you submit a program.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,
Katie
