2015 Summer Reading Evaluations

If your library offered a summer reading program for any age level, please complete the online evaluation–after you have concluded your summer reading program. This evaluation form can be found on the summer reading tab’s drop down menu above on the CHILIS website.

Please complete this evaluation even if you did not use the CSLP theme. We not only use your feedback to help improve CSLP’s services and products, but we also need to compile statistics about summer reading programs for federal reporting purposes.

You will not be able to make a copy of your responses, so you may want to save your data and responses in a different document as you enter information into the online form.

Thank you so much for all of your help!

All libraries that send in Flume votes by the voting deadline will be entered into a raffle to win the 2016 set of Flume Award titles.
