Summer Reading Workshop
The Summer Reading Workshop was held at NCLS on Wednesday, March 7. Here are the class materials:
The Importance of Summer Reading: Summary of research produced by the New York State Library, with an annotated bibliography.
NAEP Reading Snapshot: 2015 data on reading proficiency for 4th grade students in New York State from the National Assessment on Educational Progess.
Why Summer Reading is Important: Articles compiled by the Association for Library Service to Children.
Public Libraries and Effective Summer Learning: Opportunities for Assessment: White paper from the Urban Libraries Council on summer learning and assessing its impact on your community. (Don't have that kind of time? Read the executive summary.)
Summer Reading @ New York Libraries
Downloadable Materials: Including flyers and brochures in multiple languages.
A collection of regional library performers/presenters, compiled by library staff. Add your own reviews!
The online manual is now accessible on the CSLP website, and libraries should have received their USB drives in the NCLS delivery. If you've got your heart set on having the actual binder in front of you, there is one print copy of the 2018 manual that is barcoded and can be checked out. Just search "CSLP" or "Libraries Rock" in Workflows and place your hold!
