Iowa Library Services believes strongly in the importance of a Summer Library Program and, with the public libraries around the State, promotes a vigorous Summer Library program.
As a member of the national Collaborative Summer Library Program, each year Iowa Library Services provides a summer library program for public libraries. Each library receives free children's and teen program manuals for the current theme, invitations to free summer workshops and a chance to order materials at a group rate.
The 2017 Summer Library Program slogan for all ages will be "Build a Better World."
Merri Monks, Sarah Day, Angie Pilkington, Cathy Shaw, and Samantha Helmick have collaborated to create wonderful website at http://buildabetterworld2017.weebly.com/
The Summer Library Program is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by Iowa Library Services.
