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!
We have three new titles! Read more here.
This year, students in grades 9-12 will be voting again for the Flume Award in October. The new list of Flume Award books will be promoted over the summer and early fall, and teens will vote for their favorite book on the list by October 23, 2015—the end of Teen Read Week.
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.
For more information, please visit the Flume Award page at http://yals.nhlibrarians.org/book-awards/flume/
