Below you'll find some of the ideas suggested at the spring CSLP conference for "Escape the Ordinary," the slogan for the 2015 Summer Library Program's Heroes theme. Other ideas are most welcome!
If you have presented a program on one of the following topics, or have ideas for other programs or decorating/display ideas, send them in with details along with any special space needs or personnel.  Portable program ideas, ideas for reaching underserved populations are needed as are crossword puzzles, quizzes or other reproducibles.

Escape the Ordinary: in your daily lives

Escape the Ordinary : in your reading

*         Online book groups. Encourage reading different genres. If you have offered an online book group, please provide details of how it was run.

*         Challenge to read other genres

*         Armchair traveler. Many of us escape the ordinary by reading/hearing about travels to unusual places.  What books, films, speakers might work for this program?

*         What I'm reading. Ask local notables what they are reading and post online or in library. Or make book display with their  books. Perhaps local paper could publish as well.
