Summer Reading Program Report Due August 31

staci.shaw's picture

All Idaho libraries offering summer reading programs must submit a SRP report to ICfL by August 31, 2011.  You can access the report on our Summer Reading web page.  This report contains 30 questions.  In addition to providing simple data and statistics regarding the number of children who participated in your program, you will be asked to evaluate the materials and services provided by the ICfL. Once you have your participation statistics ready the report should take approximately 15 minutes to complete. 

Each library branch must fill out a report. Please keep all branch statistics separate from the main library's statistics.

If you did not offer a summer reading program this year, simply send an email to staci.shaw@libraries.idaho.gov with that information.

Summer reading program materials, such as CSLP program manuals and Bright Futures materials, are LSTA-funded. Every public library is required to submit a report with participation statistics. These statistics are used by ICfL to fulfill reporting requirements issued by IMLS (the Institute for Museum and Library Services), which administers LSTA at the federal level. In the event we receive future Fred Meyer Corporation funds to purchase books, we will use your SRP statistics from the previous year to determine how many books you will receive.  Failure to report your data will jeopardize your library’s eligibility for future summer reading books and materials.

Thank you in advance for collecting your data and submitting them to us! Your information helps us demonstrate the amount of summer reading activity taking place in Idaho’s libraries, and helps us continue to improve the services we offer to you.
