Dear Summer Library Programmers,
In November the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) put out this statement<http://www.cslpreads.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/2020-artwork-statement.pdf> on the 2020 Artwork.  Immediately following the release of this statement, Luke Kralik, CSLP Organizational Coordinator, began working with the CSLP website team, the graphic design team, and the warehouse to remove anything containing the offensive images and began the process of printing new, updated items to replace reading records and posters. Once this was done, Luke and Karen Day began to adjust orders. They have both been working tirelessly to make sure libraries receive replacement items if they have been requested. Updating orders for our member libraries is our priority right now. However, as a non-profit, CSLP has limited staff who are putting other CSLP projects on hold to focus their attention on the adjusted orders. Please be patient during this process.

Unfortunately, CSLP could stop processing orders placed before November 19th. Please note that all orders placed before this date will still include any items that have been removed from and replaced on the online store (reading records, posters.) If you ordered before that date and do not want to use these items, you can receive a store credit for the cost of the items by contacting the CSLP office directly.  If you do not plan to use the removed items, please go ahead and destroy them in-house. Please do not return them to CSLP.

All of the artwork included with the online manual has had the offensive imagery removed. The online manual is up-to-date, which all Michigan public libraries can access through www.cslpreads.org<http://www.cslpreads.org>.  Rules of Use<https://www.cslpreads.org/membership-information/rules-of-use/> were revised prior to CSLP's annual meeting in September 2019. They now allow for libraries to use the artwork on materials used to execute their summer reading programs. This includes reading logs, posters, certificates, etc.

Due to limited resources and a short timeline, CSLP has only been able to provide 1 poster replacement. The Library of Michigan feels it is important for public libraries to have access to all the poster art, and with the Rules of Use<https://www.cslpreads.org/membership-information/rules-of-use/> in mind, created the following updated 2020 posters: http://bit.ly/LM2020CSLP, to be downloaded & printed by public libraries for their summer library program use.
Description of how to use the updated poster graphics for public library use:
Tabloid Size

  *   Tabloid size is 11"x17"
  *   Can resize easily to 8.5"x11" as well as "flyer poster" size of 5.5" x 8.5"
With Bleeds

  *   This is for professional printing. They will print to the edge and then cut down at the bleed marks.
  *   Final size of finished product will be 17" x 23"
Without Bleeds

  *   The poster without any professional printing marks.
  *   Size is 17"x23"

Please remember that these posters are for public library use.

This program is supported in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
Thank you,
