A few weeks back, I put out a call for cool SLP promotion/ideas.  I heard from 4 libraries with great info about their SLP (and beyond!).  If you have stuff to share, I'd love to hear about it!
Barron is having a Summer Reading Program Launch on June 21st!  We have signs, facebook posts, website updates, and we are in the paper to promote our programs.  We have several different programs available all summer long!  Lisa Kuebli.

Some of you know we are fortunate to have a little stage in the Boyceville library and kids love it! We get the entire elementary school to walk over here one grade at a time and help us perform a skit to promote the summer reading program. Laurie did a really fun job of decorating this year, see  alien spaceship below with fun twinkle lights. The kids love being on stage, we get them to read a line or two and they get really excited about signing up.

In Durand,  we recently set up a box of free discarded children’s and regular library books to use at the Laundromat.  We got permission by the owner to place the box in there.   We set up with the idea in case they are bored at the laundromat and they are discarded so we won’t worry if they take them. 

Bruce Area Library is partnering with the Bruce Public School this year, in a way. We have at least three teachers from the school helping to make our program a success. The Board of Directors chose Sarah Solberg, a Title 1 teacher, to head the program for the summer and she created the flier that I shared with you.
