CSLP Resources

South Carolina is a member of the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP).

The Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) is a consortium of states working together to provide high-quality summer reading program materials for children at the lowest cost possible for their public libraries. The participating systems and states develop a unified and high-quality promotional and programming product. Participants have access to the same artwork, incentives and publicity, in addition to an extensive manual of programming and promotional ideas. All fifty states participate and the Board of Directors is represented by members who have been voted in by the membership, including two from South Carolina. South Carolina has been a member for several years.
