Libraries that promote a variety of reading and listening formats as additional ways children and teens can participate in SRP:

Athena Public Library

(541) 566-2470

Athena promotes a variety of reading and listening formats by using a summer program log that requires participants to engage in a variety of learning activities and read different genres to finish the summer reading program rather than using a traditional reading log.   The log they used in 2010 was directly from the Collaborative Summer Library Program manual; all they did was make photocopies to distribute to summer reading participants.  The exact log cannot be displayed due to copyright.  However, it included small clip-art images for children to cross off when they: read one non-fiction book of their choice, read one fiction book of their choice, read one poetry/nursery rhyme book, read one graphic novel/manga, listened to a music CD, listened to an audio book, attended one summer reading event at the library, wrote a review/drew a picture of their favorite book that summer, etc.

 

Corvallis-Benton County Library 

(541) 766-6910

In 2011 Corvallis-Benton County redesigned their summer reading activity sheet and reading log to promote exploring different formats for reading reading and listening. The update also promoted reading a variety of genres and reading in all the city parks.
