Summer Reading Program Materials

The South Central Kansas Library System annually cooperates with other regional library systems and the State Library of Kansas to purchase and provide Summer Reading Program materials at no charge to SCKLS member libraries that offer an annual Summer Reading Program.  Since SCKLS does not directly administer the statewide purchasing process for Summer Reading Program materials, our ability to provide and fund such resources is limited.

SCKLS member libraries that want to receive these materials at no charge are responsible for providing SCKLS with a current work email address and monitoring the cycle of email and website communications from SCKLS as well as responding to requests for information in a timely manner.  

To facilitate member libraries in providing a Summer Reading Program (SRP) to their communities, SCKLS provides the following cycle of communications and support services.

 June - August Email and website request for SRP statistics. 
 August - September SRP statistics closure.
 October - December SRP Manual distribution.   SRP Order Form.  SRP Grant disbursement.
 January - March SRP material delivery including receipt confirmation by signature;  SCKLS SRP Workshop and SRP Craft WorKshop
 March - May SRP Banner deliveries to member libraries having completed the SRP Order Form.
