Summer Library Program: Themes

This guide covers everything you need to plan, promote, and execute your summer library program for all ages!

CSLP Upcoming Themes

2020: Imagine Your Story

With artist LeUyen Pham at the helm, 2020 is shaping up to be an outstanding program year for summer reading. With themes of fairytales, mythology, and fantasy, libraries of all shapes and sizes will have a magical starting point to dazzle their communities!

2021: Tails and Tales

Few children’s illustrators are as uniquely suited to an animals themed program as Salina Yoon. Picture her work with ducks, penguins, and porcupines! Are you excited yet? It is quite possible that new levels of adorableness will be discovered in 2021.

2022: All Together Now

While themes are always important, it is really the slogan that crystallizes the identity of the program year, and 2022 will be no different. Artist Sophie Blackall will be providing the illustrations, and it should be a wonderful year for libraries to highlight the unifying effect they have on their communities.
