Webinar link will be emailed to registered attendees the day before the webinar.


The Collaborative Summer Library Program's 2021 theme is Tails & Tales! From the jungle to the farm, the deep blue sea to the cold arctic; animals and stories from around the globe can be featured throughout your summer programming.


Join public library staff across Michigan as we brainstorm and share ideas for early literacy, children's and teen programming, explore the 2021 manual and CSLP support, and how we might adapt programming for the unique circumstances of a pandemic. We will also have the opportunity to meet with CSLP Organizational Coordinator, Luke Kralik to learn more about how this mostly volunteer organization empowers libraries across the country to foster community through literacy. You are encouraged to come with a free account set-up on www.CSLPreads.org and have the online manual downloaded. Please come with ideas to share! If you need the manual access code, please contact Cathy Lancaster at the Library of Michigan (LancasterC5@Michigan.gov) before the workshop with an official work email account.

This project is made possible by grant funds from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) administered by the State of Michigan through the Library of Michigan.

Instructor: Cathy Lancaster, Youth Services Coordinator at the Library of Michigan. Luke Kralik, Organizational Coordinator at the Collaborative Summer Library Program.
