We are the Oregon Young Adult Network! We have the power to 
transform...Summer Reading!

Yes, even now as you zoom into Teen Read Week toward Mock Printz and 
beyond to Teen Tech Week, you can project yourself even further into the 
future for the Summer of 2014. That's right, 2014!

Now is the time to prepare your ideas for the Teen CSLP Manual for 2014. 
The deadline: November 1. The theme, Science, is aglow with STEM-y 
goodness. The teen slogan: "Spark a Reaction!" Think of Bill Nye and 
exult: it's Science! Exercise your gleeful laugh.

Attached in RTF format you’ll find science ideas generated at the annual 
CSLP meeting last April for the teen manual. I'm including them at the 
end of this message as well, just to cover our communicative bases. As 
you’ll see, the librarians went even broader in their brainstorming 
session this year. If you’ve done a successful program along any of 
these lines, please share it with all your CSLP-using colleagues. If you 
have other great ideas for "Spark a Reaction", share those, too!

The CSLP chair is especially interested in your ideas for Setting the 
Scene: how to do a display; decorating your teen area; making a teen 
space inviting; and what else to display besides books.

Send your contributions by November 1 to:
