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, 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. (2020)
To access editable summer reading challenges developed by the Texas State Library, view the recent blog post. These challenges were not designed to be used as Bingo games. Bingo is strictly regulated in Texas and requires obtaining a license from the Texas Lottery Commission.
