2010 Oregon summer reading program report

Last November 124 of 128 Oregon public libraries completed the 2010 summer reading survey.  The statistics reported in that survey have been compiled into the attached 'Oregon State Library: Summer Reading Brief 2011'. This brief is a snapshot of library summer reading program outputs in Oregon last summer. This has been shared at the state level to provide information about the impact of the Ready to Read grant program. Please feel free to use this report as template to create a summer reading brief to share your library's summer reading statistics with key stake holders in your community.

2011 summer reading program statistics reminder

Many of you requested that I send out a reminder about what statistics you will be asked to report on the 2011 summer reading survey so you can be sure you're collecting the right data this summer.  Below are the summer reading statistics you will be asked to report this Fall.  Keep in mind that Oregon libraries are at liberty to implement the statewide 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 something you don't track. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Do children and teens have to sign-up (or register) to participate in your summer reading program?  If yes, then:

*         How many children and teens total signed up?

*         If you track children and teens separately, how many CHILDREN signed-up?

*         If you track children and teens separately, how many TEENS signed-up?

Do children and teens participating in your summer reading program fill out a reading record (reading log, game board, etc.) to track how much they read/listen to books over the summer?  If yes, then:

*         How many children and teens turned in completed reading records (i.e. how many finishers did you have)?



*         If children and teens reported the amount of time they spent reading on their reading records, how many HOURS did they read? (For example:  If kids had to read 10 hours to complete a reading record and your library received 78 completed reading records, then you would enter '780' as your answer to this question. You can report to your stakeholders that kids at your library read 780 hours over the summer.)


*         If children and teens reported the number of pages they read on their reading records, how many PAGES did they read? (For example:  If kids had to read 100 pages to complete a reading record and your library received 52 completed reading records, then you would enter '5,200' as your answer to this question. You can report to your stakeholders that kids at your library read 5,200 pages over the summer.)


*         If children and teens reported the number of books they read on their reading records, how many BOOKS did they read? (For example:  If kids had to read 5 books to complete a reading record and your library received 100 completed reading records, then you would enter '500' as your answer to this question. You can report to your stakeholders that kids at your library read 500 books over the summer.)



*         If children and teens didn't report amount of time spent reading, number of pages read, or number of books read on their reading records; how did they track their reading over the summer?

How many CHILDREN'S summer reading programs/activities/events did you offer?

How many people attended summer reading programs/activities/events targeting CHILDREN?

How many TEEN summer reading programs/activities/events did you offer?

How many people attended summer reading programs/activities/events targeting TEENS?

Did your library have an adult summer reading program?  If yes, then:

*         How many adults participated?

*         How did you track participation?
