Summer Learning, Library, Lunch (SL3)
Since 2012, the Oregon State Library has been partnering with OregonASK, Oregon Department of Education, Child Nutrition Programs, Oregon Library Association, and the National Summer Learning Association to keep school libraries open in conjunction with the free summer lunch program and provide the statewide summer reading program. The goal of the Summer Learning, Summer Library, Summer Lunch (SL3) program is prevent summer learning loss and reduce the achievement gap.  
SL3  sites are schools selected by OregonASK based on the percentage of students eligible for free or reduced lunch and the percentage of students not reading at grade level according to the most recent 3rd grade reading test scores. SL3 sites are encouraged to partner with their local public library to implement the summer reading program. If a public library is unable to do partner with an SL3 site, then the State Library provides summer reading support. Youth from birth through 12th grade may participate in lunch and summer reading at SL3 sites.
