Collaborative Summer Library Program

The Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) is a nonprofit, charitable organization that supports literacy, education and science through summer reading events in public libraries across the United States. The management of CSLP is overseen by the Board of Directors which consists of state representatives or librarians from participating libraries who plan, communicate and coordinate all operations. The mission statement of the CSLP is to "empower libraries to foster community". Today, the CSLP is a consortium of libraries with representation from all 50 of the United States, the District of Columbia, American Samoa and the Mariana Islands working together to share and develop high-quality programs for children, teens and adults. The Collaborative Summer Library Program provides program materials, artwork and technical expertise in the form of a manual that membership libraries can order to help create meaningful and exciting experiences during the summer. Its current office is in Mason City, Iowa.
