Summer Reading

Every summer, Oregon libraries work to prevent summer learning loss and maintain grade levels through the Collaborative Summer Library program (CSLP), funded by federal funds through the Library Services and Technology Act. Babies, children, and teens who participate in summer library programs benefit from opportunities promoting literacy development. The State Library is proud to partner with and support libraries in enhancing lifelong learning and providing meaningful, enjoyable summer learning experiences for all Oregonians.
