Summer Reading 2018 Survey
This is the site to report your summer reading statistics for 2018. Don't forget to keep a copy of your statistics for your own records! Your responses will help the State Library and NJLA to provide helpful resources and support for future summer reading programs. Your responses will also help demonstrate the importance of libraries as leaders in summer enrichment, literacy support, and workforce development.

Our final report of all the libraries' statistics requires only the total number of books read. If your library keeps track of reading using something different, such as hours or minutes, please convert them to numbers of books using this formula: 1 book = 1 hour (or 60 minutes), 1 book = 100 pages, 1 day = (8 books - equivalent to reading about 8 hours a day).

Please Note: You will not receive summer reading materials for the 2019 program without submitting statistics for 2018.

Due to budget constraints, all public libraries will only receive ONLINE access to the 2019 summer reading manuals. No paper manuals will be purchased and sent to you. If you wish to purchase a print manual in print or USB yourself, you may do so by ordering directly through the CSLP website's shop page (http://shopcslp.com/).

Please direct any questions to Sharon Rawlins, NJ State Library Youth Services Specialist for Lifelong Learning, at srawlins@njstatelib.org

The deadline to submit your statistics is Friday, October 12, 2018. This is a FIRM deadline because the final report from the statewide program is due at the end of October.

Thank you!
