Hi, Everyone,

It’s that time of the summer when I, as the State Representative, ask for those of you working in public libraries to complete the summer reading survey created by the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP). This survey was created so CSLP can better assess the usefulness of the materials offered by the program on a national level to better serve you, the CSLP membership! Here is the link to the survey:


Who should complete this survey?

The audience for the survey is public library staff who played an active role in administering or running 2022 summer library programming. One person per library could fill it out, or multiple library staff from the same library could complete the sections of the survey most relevant to their work; e.g. children, teen, or adult programs.

  *   Please coordinate with your colleagues on who will fill it out, especially if you are in a multi-branch system.

  *   This does NOT need to be filled out by Directors. (Adult/YA/Children program overseers can complete their own portions.)


Is this survey required?

Yes, I, as the NJ Statewide Summer Reading Coordinator determines whether to purchase summer reading incentives for all NJ libraries based on your input.  Every library that responds helps CSLP get a more accurate picture of overall satisfaction with the program.

I want to be prepared.  What info will I need to provide?

  *   General feedback on using (or not) the 2022 program theme and materials;

   *   Feedback and info about how/whether you tracked participation, as well as stats for participation and programming for children (ages 0-11), teens (12-18) and adults.

You may skip any questions for which you don't have the answers.  I suggest you wait until your summer program has ended to complete the survey. Here is the survey link: The link to the survey is also on the NJ Summer Reading website.

When does the survey close? The deadline to complete the survey is Friday, September 9, 2022. (Yes, this is earlier than in previous years).

If you want to view the survey in PDF form before you fill it out, you can find it here:

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  Thank you in advance for sharing your input!



All the best,
