Hello colleagues!

It's that time, and the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) team is
looking for your awesome ideas for the 2018 summer reading manuals for
children and early literacy. Details are below, including how to submit
your ideas, themes to tie your ideas to, and accepted formats for your
submissions. Let's get into the groove!

Work has begun on the CSLP 2018 Children’s and Early Literacy Manuals, and
we would love your input!  *Our 2018 theme is “Libraries Rock!”  Below,
you’ll find subthemes for each manual, to help give you an idea of what
we’ll be covering in each one.*

We’re looking for ideas for programs, books, activities, displays,
decorations, storytimes, incentives, and more.  Our manuals incorporate
diverse books, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math),
early literacy, hands-on activities, and programming for a wide range of
interests, age groups, and budgets.  Whether you’ve got an idea for one
activity or an entire program outline, we’d love to hear from you.

Please submit your ideas by June 30, 2016 to Amanda Struckmeyer at
amandacmoss at gmail.com; be sure to include your name, institution, city, and
state, so that we can acknowledge you in the manual.  Please note whether
any fingerplays, rhymes, or songs are original works.  Any format is
welcome (book lists, bulleted lists, brief notes, or full paragraphs, for
