Summer Library Program Materials

The South Central Kansas Library System annually cooperates with other regional library systems and the State Library of Kansas to purchase and provide Summer Library Program materials at no charge to SCKLS member libraries that offer an annual Summer Library Program.  Since SCKLS does not directly administer the statewide purchasing process for Summer Library Program materials, our ability to provide and fund such resources is limited.

SCKLS member libraries that want to receive these materials at no charge are responsible for providing SCKLS with a current work email address and monitoring the cycle of email and website communications from SCKLS as well as responding to requests for information in a timely manner.  

To facilitate member libraries in providing a Summer Library Program (SLP) to their communities, SCKLS provides the following cycle of communications and support services.

June - August Email and website request for SLP statistics. 
August - September SLP statistics closure.
October - December SLP Manual, Catalog, and Order Form.  SLP Grant disbursement.
January - March SLP material delivery including receipt confirmation by signature;  SCKLS SLP Workshop
March - May SLP Banner deliveries to member libraries having completed the SLP Order Form.
