The 2011 Oregon Summer Reading Brief<http://www.oregon.gov/OSL/LD/youthsvcs/srp.certificates/OSLsrpBrief2011.pdf> has just been published!  The SRP brief is a compilation of data that Oregon public libraries reported this September via the Summer Reading Statistics and Ordering Survey.  The SRP brief provides a picture of summer reading participation in Oregon. On the summer reading webpage<http://www.oregon.gov/OSL/LD/youthsvcs/oregon.srp.certificate.shtml#Oregon_Summer_Reading_Briefs> you will find the SRP brief in both a pdf and word.docx format. Libraries are encouraged to use the word.docx as a template to create their own summer reading brief to share their statistics with their library board, city council, commissioners, and other library stake holders.

Based on requests from several libraries, the State Library is now publishing the Summer Reading Statistics Spreadsheet<http://www.oregon.gov/OSL/LD/youthsvcs/srp.certificates/OregonSRPstatistics2011.pdf>.  This allows you to compare participation in summer reading at your library to similar libraries in Oregon.  In addition, I included the population of children 0-14 years old from the 2011-2012 Ready to Read Grant list and calculated the % of those children who signed-up and finished so you can get a better idea of the reach your program has in your community. This spreadsheet also includes adult summer reading statistics.
