The Summer Reading Workshop will be held at NCLS on Wednesday, March 7, from 10am-3pm. More details coming soon!
The online manual is now accessible on the CSLP website, and USB drives will be arriving at libraries soon. 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!
