Collaborative Summer Library Program Resources

​​​​​What is t​​he Collaborative Summer Library Program?

The Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) is a consortium of state libraries and public library systems working together to provide high-quality summer reading program materials for children and teens.

KDLA distributes information from CSLP to all public libraries across the Commonwealth.   

For more information and updates from CSLP:

2022 Theme – Oceans of Po​​ssibility / Océanos de posibilidades  

Every year the voted upon theme and slogan is integrated into an inclusive, literacy-based, summer reading program that is enjoyable for all ages, complete with a unified theme, program manual, artwork, resources, and professional support.

Libraries are encouraged to use whatever materials may be most suitable for their system, including anything that has been published previously by CSLP for the Summer Reading Program. Please be aware of the CSLP Rules of Use when using the CSLP materials.

Every year KDLA provides a USB drive containing the CSLP manual free of charge to every public library in Kentucky. If you have additional questions about CSLP materials, rules of use, or need assistance with your summer reading program, please contact Amy Olson, Youth Services Consultant at  

CSLP Man​​uals
