Last call! Are you someone who has strong opinions about the Collaborative Summer Library Program’s summer reading artwork, or the theme and slogan? Do you always have loads of program ideas to share? Maybe you are fluent in Spanish or are passionate about summer meals, reaching and representing everyone in your community, or working with schools. Do you have a brain for statistics, or a flair for social media?
If any of the above describe you… Consider joining a CSLP committee! Sign-ups for 2023 are open until Monday, October 3. While the duties vary, committee obligations generally run for one calendar year. All committee work is done virtually; either through email, or through phone or online meetings.
