Starting on November 16, Texas public libraries will be able to order the free CSLP posters, bookmarks, reading logs, and certificates provided by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission! 

The 2021 CSLP theme is Animals and Stories. The slogan for early literacy, children, teen, and adult programs is “Tales and Tails” or “Colas y Cuentos.” Unique artwork has been created for each age group by artist Salina Yoon.

We’ve updated the ordering process to make it faster and more convenient, and to give your library greater control over the process. Each library will place their order directly through the CSLP website.
