Download and print the 2016 Oregon Summer Reading Certificates here: http://www.oregon.gov/osl/LD/Pages/youthsvcs/summerreading/summerreadingcertificates.aspx

The 2016 Oregon Summer Reading Certificates are only available to download and print<http://www.oregon.gov/osl/LD/Pages/youthsvcs/summerreading/summerreadingcertificates.aspx> now until October 1, 2016. Each certificate is available in .pdf format which everyone should be able to access and .pub format which requires Microsoft Publisher to access. The children's (full color), all ages (black & white), and adult (full color) certificates are bilingual, the teen certificate (full color) is in English only.

 Ideas to get money for printing certificates locally:

  *   Use your Ready to Read Grant.
  *   Ask your Friends of the Library or Library Foundation for funding.
  *   Ask a local civic organization like Kiwanis, Lions, or Rotary for a donation.
  *   Ask local businesses for donations and recognize their donations-e.g. create a bulletin board or display where you recognize all summer reading supporters, submit a newspaper article thanking donors, put donors' logos on summer reading fliers or other promotional materials.
  *   Ask a local print shop to provide an in-kind donation-i.e. they would print the certificates at no cost to the library, and the library would acknowledge their contribution in some way.
Thank you Becky Pearson from McMinnville Public Library, Sam Geary from McMinnville Public Library, and Itzel Sayago from Cornelius Public Library for designing the certificates!

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Q: Why aren't hardcopies of the certificates available anymore?

A: In the past, printing and distributing hardcopies of the summer reading certificates was paid for by a donation. The donation funds are no longer available. The State Library surveyed public libraries to ask if they thought printing and distributing the certificates was a good use of State Library funds. The results of the survey were shared with the executive boards of OLA's Children's Services Division and Oregon Young Adults Network, and both organizations recommended that the State Library 1) discontinue printing and distributing hardcopies, 2) make a black-and-white certificate available to download for those who don't have a color printer, and 3) provide a few local funding suggestions. The State Library decided to follow these recommendations.
