What is CSLP?





2018 Texas Summer Reading Program

Welcome to the Texas Summer Reading Program! The program centers around a statewide membership for public libraries in the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP).

  • The CSLP consists of a grassroots consortium of all 50 states working together to provide high-quality summer reading materials for all ages of readers.
  • Includes early literacy, children’s, teen, and adult programs.
  • The Texas State Library provides a basic starter kit of materials including a program manual on thumb drive, clip art, and a themed CSLP catalog to each qualified participating public library in Texas.
  • Financial support is available to these libraries in order to purchase a limited number of bookmarks, posters, certificates, and reading logs.
  • Libraries also have the opportunity to purchase additional incentives at their own expense through the CSLP web site.

The Texas Summer Reading Program is funded by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services through a grant to the Texas State Library and Archives Commission. (2017)
