In addition to sponsoring the youth Summer Reading Program, OLIS supports adult programs that encourage adults to explore new genres, pursue new interests, and model lifelong learning and reading to children and teens. OLIS is a member of the Collaborative Summer Library Program, a national collaboration of state library agencies and associations that works to develop materials that support a high-quality summer reading program for children, teens, and adults. Through OLIS, adult summer reading participants may earn coupons for free admission to RI attractions.
Adult services librarians may wish to explore the other pages in this LibGuide, especially the Themed Resources page for additional resources!
Statistics collection for the adult Summer Reading Program will take place August 17 – September 30. There will be an online survey for collecting participation numbers, program numbers, outreach efforts and other outcomes. There will be a separate survey for collecting statistics for children's and teen programs. You can view a draft of the survey to help you know what information to collect during your summer reading program.
