Summer Reading

Maine is a member of the national Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP). The State Library and Maine Humanities Council partner together to administer our statewide CSLP program.

Public, volunteer, and tribal libraries in Maine have the choice to use the CSLP theme, slogan, and resources to plan their local summer reading program, create their own summer reading program from scratch, or a combination of both. School libraries and other organizations in Maine that wish to use the CSLP summer reading program theme, slogan, or resources must partner with their local public library or the State Library.
