Sorry to be state specific here, but I wanted to get the word out. One of my ARRT colleagues-- Maggie-- is also the 2015 chair for the iRead Committee, which develops Summer Reading programs and themes for the Illinois Library Association’s official summer reading program. Here is the link for the 2014 program.
One of Maggie's goals during her time as chair is to increase support and resources for adult services librarians who organize summer reading programs. For many years, iRead has really only thought about the youth services side of the equation (which is why Berwyn uses Collaborative Summer Library Program because our adult summer reading program is quite popular and complex), so I am happy that Maggie is trying to change that.
To help in her efforts, she created a short 10-question survey and asked if people could spread the word around Illinois. So please take a moment to help by filling out this Adult Summer Reading Survey.
