Posted on behalf of K’Lyn Hann:

The logo of CSLP, the Collaborative Summer Library ProgramCSLP (Collaborative Summer Library Program) has many volunteer committee opportunities to impact summer reading on an international level! Nearly all are done in an entirely virtual format with members from across the US and US Territories. Here’s a list of the standing and ad hoc committees and their descriptions.

Anyone who is part of CSLP, which includes all Oregon libraries via the Oregon State Library, are eligible to participate on these committees. You do not have to be the CSLP rep for OYAN or CSD nor a Youth Services Consultant on a state level. Although the terms begin June 1st, the organization is doing some restructuring, which is opening sign-ups NOW.

If you have any further questions, please contact one of the following:

“The Teen Video Challenge is an annual event from the Collaborative Summer Library Program, which encourages teens to create their own 30-90 second videos promoting Summer Reading. One winner from Oregon will represent us on the national CSLP website, and all the state winners will be posted for anyone to use to promote their “Spark a Reaction” teen summer reading program for 2014. Each state’s winners will also receive a cash prize of $275, plus their public library gets goodies from Upstart/Highsmith/Demco worth $125.
