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<mailto: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 example).
If you prefer, a CSLP Program Submission Form can be found at http://www.cslpreads.org.
