Collaborative Summer Library Program

Mission: We empower libraries to foster community.

Vision: We collaborate with libraries to create an inclusive literacy based program that is enjoyable for all ages, provide a reproducible program with a unified theme, share resources and offer professional support.

History: CSLP began in 1987 when ten Minnesota regional library systems developed a summer library program for children, choosing a theme, creating artwork, and selecting incentives that public libraries in the regions could purchase and use. State libraries and systems continue to join and CSLP continues to evolve, but its guiding principle remains the same: librarians sharing ideas, expertise, and costs to produce a high-quality summer reading program for children, teens, and adults.
