Idea Submissions: 2021 "Tails & Tales" (animals)
CSLP encourages the collaboration of innovative and age appropriate ideas, resources, and programs through the production of programming manuals. The manuals include program ideas, booklists, decorations and activities for four age groups, from babies to adults. Since public librarians are our customers for the manual, we want your ideas! You know what will work best in your libraries. Use the form below to submit your idea and any related materials (pictures, worksheets, etc.).
All submissions will be reviewed by the Manual Idea Development Committee. However, due to the manual's limited number of pages, not all ideas can be put in print.
Name (first and last)
The 2021 Manual will have six (6) thematic chapters. Please recommend a chapter that best fits your idea. Note: The final chapter names are still in development.
Bookish Beasts/Books with Bite (animals in books, stories about animals, animals as main characters)
Get Wild/Take a Walk on the Wild Side/ Other “Wild” Phrase (wild animals—close to home, in the backyard, in the forest/jungle/ocean/air—Wild and crazy animal behaviors, food chain, animal kingdom)
Dr. Doolittle and Friends (people who work with animals, careers in zoology, animal societies, local organizations and agencies involved with animals like Fish and Game…)
No Place Like Home (habitats, pets, pet parades?, how animals adapt to environment)
