Summer Reading Program



Summer Library Programs are held in public libraries all across Arkansas in June through August every year.  This is an LSTA Sponsored Program.

Public libraries will be offering a variety of activites, events, and learning opportunties for their local communities.  In 2018, most will be focusing on music and using the theme of   "Libraries Rock!"  Each library will have their own schedule of events so check out a library near you and join in the fun!

Families will find more information about the Summer Library Programs here.  Parents will also want to see A Letter to Parents.

Arkansas participates in the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) which is a grassroots consortium of states working together to provide high-quality summer reading program materials for children at the lowest cost possible for their public libraries.

By combining resources and working with a commercial vendor to produce materials designed exclusively for CSLP members, public libraries in participating states or systems can purchase posters, reading logs, bookmarks, certificates and a variety of reading incentives at significant savings.
