The 2017 Summer Reading Program Manuals and Catalogs are in the Mail!

We are very happy to announce that the Texas State Library is now mailing the 2017 CSLP manuals and catalogs to you! Each and every Texas main and branch location will receive a packet with a single USB drive and a 2017 CSLP catalog. If you do not receive your packet by Friday, November 4, please contact us at, 512-463-5465, or 800-252-9386 (toll-free for Texas).

Each USB drive includes the 2017 CSLP manuals and artwork for the early literacy, children, teen, and usb-driveadult programs. The packet will also include a catalog for the 2017 CSLP artwork and program incentives. Be on the lookout for a packet from the State Library.

When you receive your packet, download the manuals and store your USB drive in a safe and handy place! The manuals may only be downloaded to all computers in the branch or location to which they are shipped. In accordance with the revised CSLP Rules of Use, manuals may not be uploaded onto  library intranets or shared with other branches or locations.

If your library’s computer does not have a USB drive, please let us know. We also ordered some DVDs for libraries that need them. Libraries wishing to order DVD’s or additional USB drives may purchase them directly from the CSLP at for $10 each. Libraries may also purchase printed program manuals for $20 plus shipping directly from the CSLP. A DVD containing the graphics will also be included.

“Build a Better World / Construye un Mundo Mejor” is the slogan for the 2017 CSLP early literacy, children’s, teen, adult, and all ages programs. The themes are Architecture, Building, and Construction, and unique artwork has been created for each age group. The illustrators for the 2017 CSLP artwork are:

Early Literacy & Children’s program: David Macaulay
