ALA’s Association of Library Services to Children is seeking contributions for a list of ideas aimed at keeping kids from experiencing the “summer slide,” or “loss of academic skills, motivation, and knowledge that happens over the summer.” If you have successfully addressed this in the past, please consider sharing your initiative with the committee.
If you would like to contribute your program or idea (or have questions about the committee or our projects) please send an email to committee chair Julie Bartel at julietbartel at gmail.com<mailto:julietbartel at gmail.com> (note the middle “t”!)

Subject: [ALA Connect] Contribute to "Summer Slide" Resource List (new) - AASL (The American Association of School Librarians)
CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
“Summer Slide,” the loss of academic skills, motivation, and knowledge that happens over the summer, can set students back a full month. Keeping students reading and engaged in learning activities year round can be a challenge, which is why the AASL/ALSC/YALSA Interdivisional Committee on Joint School/Public Library Cooperation would love to hear from you!
Have you created a program to help combat “Summer Slide” in your school or library? Has your organization found a way to bridge the gap between school years by working with other organizations to support kids over the summer? Do you have ideas for programs, resources, or best practices that might successfully slow the “Summer Slide” for youth of all ages?
If so, please contribute to our resource list!
The AASL/ALSC/YALSA Interdivisional Committee on Joint School/Public Library Cooperation is a unique committee that includes members from all three ALA divisions. Each year the committee is charged with compiling resources around a theme and making those resources available in a variety of ways including print and electronic publications.
If you would like to contribute your program or idea (or have questions about the committee or our projects) please send an email to committee chair Julie Bartel at julietbartel at gmail.com<mailto:julietbartel at gmail.com> (note the middle “t”!) with answers to the questions below. You can also send your contribution in any format (links, articles, blog posts, podcasts, etc.) to the same address. Contributions will be included in our resources list, and may be included in one of our print or electronic publications. Please make sure to include contact info so the committee can get in touch with follow up questions and publication details.
Thank you so much for your ingenuity, dedication, and support!
