We would like to get a count of how many children/teens participate in library summer reading programs. We do not count attendance at each program, as children/teens may attend more than one program and would be counted more than once. Children did not need to "complete" your program, only "participate" (according to how your library defines "participation."). We will ask for your "completion" numbers further along in the report.
OPTIONAL: If you separated your summer reading programming into age groups, please tell us how many children in each age group participated in summer reading.
If you visited summer nutrition programs, daycares, schools, clinics, events, etc. to host a library event or hand out books during the summer months, we would like your best estimate of the number of children and teens you made contact with and delivered the message, "Read over the summer!"One way to do this would be to count the number of books distributed or the number of reading logs distributed at outreach sites. Please do your best to count these children/teens only once.
Note: If your library participated in at least one Bright Futures program, you were required to formally evaluate your summer reading program.
If your library participated in Parent Outreach, School Partnerships, or Summer Outreach to Underserved Children, you will need to submit program participation numbers below.
Data tracking sheets for each program below were provided to the library director and applicant of each program. These sheets should help you provide accurate information. Not all information on the data tracking sheets will need to be submitted on this report, but that information will be helpful to you in planning for next year.
Schools that achieved the goal of at least 20% participation in target grades will receive five additional hardcover books, if this report is submitted by September 15. If any schools listed above achieved their goal, the public library will also receive five additional hardcover books. In October ICfL will send the book sets and thank you letters to the public library to distribute to the schools.
ICfL provided a 2019 CSLP program manual to every library that submitted its 2018 summer reading report.
