Attend a one of the eight Jump Start locations nearest to you and explore the Collaborative Summer Library Program's manual. Learn more about potential activities and programs that align with the national summer theme "Imagine Your Story". Practice lessons as a group with all supplies provided at the workshop.

Jump Start is a wonderful opportunity for local librarians to get to know each other better. Also the local workshops create an opportunity for peer-to-peer idea sharing, tips, adaptations, and inclusion methods to the existing CSLP lessons.

All workshops will be 10 am to 3 pm (local time) with a break for lunch.

Registration deadline is February 7, 2020.
