MDE Early Literacy Update
The Michigan legislature approved a new $17.65 billion School Aid Budget<https://www.house.mi.gov/hfa/PDF/Summaries/19s0927h1cr1_education_omnibus_report_summary.pdf> that includes increased funding for Literacy Essentials, new funding for digital literacy training and Boys and Girls Club literacy supports, and cuts to Summer School Literacy Intervention Grants. In particular, a $3-million boost was given to literacy coaches and literacy training for educators.

Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) 2021 Manual
The "Tails & Tales" 2021 CSLP Manual is now live! However, we have only purchased 1 access code per library, so an email has gone out this morning, directly to all library directors, with the code (we will not be snail mailing it this year, only email). If you are the summer library program coordinator at your library, please look for a forwarded message from your director. Once you have the code to access the manual, you will need to create a user account on the CSLP website, if you don't already have one. The account can be for individual, or shared among the library staff in your building, as we have only 1 access code per library.  Manuals, graphics and more are available for download, printing, or you can continue to access it online through the library account. Please do not share the manual outside your library. The CSLP 2021 Tails & Tales shop is also now open, until the Library of Michigan re-opens I will not be able to mail out any catalogs, so please browse online: https://www.cslpreads.org/cslp-store/. Artwork this year is done by Salina Yoon.  I think you'll be as excited as I am to see the programs & art!
This program is supported in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

New Teen Celebration, TeenTober
TeenTober<http://www.ala.org/yalsa/teentober> is a new, nationwide celebration hosted by libraries every October and aims to celebrate teens, promote year-round teen services and the innovative ways teen services helps teens learn new skills, and fuel their passions in and outside the library. TeenTober<http://www.ala.org/yalsa/teentober> replaces YALSA's previous Teen Read Week(tm) and Teen Tech Week(tm) celebrations, allowing libraries the flexibility to celebrate all types of literacies according to their library's schedule. Library staff are also encouraged to utilize this new celebration to advocate for and raise awareness of the importance of year-round teen services in libraries. To assist libraries plan their celebrations, YALSA has released a digital poster<https://www.alastore.ala.org/content/teentober%E2%84%A2-poster-file>, bookmark<https://www.alastore.ala.org/content/teentober%E2%84%A2-bookmark-file>, and toolkit<http://www.ala.org/yalsa/teentober>, which features planning, advocacy, and program resources.

2020 Teens' Top Ten Voting
Voting for YALSA's Teens' Top Ten<http://www.ala.org/yalsa/teenstopten>, a "teen choice" list, where teens nominate and choose their favorite books of the previous year, is going on now through Oct. 15. Library staff are encouraged to promote the 25 nominated titles to their teens so that they can participate in the vote. The "top ten" titles with the most votes from teens will be named the official 2020 Teens' Top Ten titles. Vote<https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NXWY5VK> now.

Tuesday, October 6
2:00 PM ET - Library of Michigan
Join us as two escape-room-loving librarians walk you through what you need to have for escape rooms at your library. We'll cover how to build in-person rooms for families and groups, how to take an escape room to schools, and how to build a digital escape room for community engagement. In the process, we'll consider budgets and staffing needs for libraries of all shapes and sizes. The webinar link will be emailed to registered attendees the day before the event. This is supported in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. It will be recorded and shared to registrants.
