Collaborative Summer Library Program
The Library of Michigan has purchased Michigan's public libraries online access to the 2022 Collaborative Summer Library Program's "Oceans of Possibilities" Manual. This manual contains all the programming resources, graphics, and book lists for the upcoming summer.  I'm happy to share that CSLP has also updated their website and the manual is easier than ever to navigate.
To open & download the manual, you will need the access code - the access code for 2022 has been sent to all public library directors in Michigan via LM's LibPass portal on 9/27/21, having come to their inbox from "Mi at countingopinions.com<mailto:Mi at countingopinions.com>." If your director did not receive and forward the access code to you, please reach out to them directly for the code or for them to contact me. To open & download the manual from the CSLP website (www.cslpreads.org<https://gcc02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cslpreads.org%2F&data=04%7C01%7CLancasterC5%40michigan.gov%7C25821264373c4c47a6b208d983651505%7Cd5fb7087377742ad966a892ef47225d1%7C0%7C0%7C637685292448879685%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=7myJb44mR9HrlU%2FXQuADyWOiCUUXMxlGhXDRdiDYGmg%3D&reserved=0>) hover over the "Manual Downloads" tab, located on the menu bar. From the drop-down menu, select 2022 Oceans of Possibilities. You will be prompted to enter your access code. Please do not share your code outside of your library or post it in a publicly accessible location.

CSLP's Store is now open<https://shop.cslpreads.org/> and the 2022 Oceans of Possibilities Catalog<https://shop.cslpreads.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/48794-cslp-product-catalogweb-2022.pdf> is also available online. CSLP's partnership with Stick Together(r) will be continuing for 2022, too, so look for new art to be released soon.

Tuesdays, November 9th, 16th, and 23rd, 2021
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET
Early literacy is the base upon which a child who reads with understanding is built. The goal of this 3-part workshop is to teach storytime staff how to explain, model and encourage caregivers to help their children develop the early literacy skills needed to learn how to read. Participants will become familiar with seminal research on early literacy, how to explain its importance to caregivers while presenting fun, interactive storytimes. This will also cover the 5 practices of Every Child Ready to Read, the basis of Ready to Read Michigan.

>From Diversity to Inclusion: How to Audit Your Collection and Why
Wednesday, December 15, 2021
11:00 AM - Noon ET
No need to register if you are unable to attend this session live, a recording will be shared via email and posted on our website.
Join Kymberlee Powe, Children and YA Consultant for the Connecticut State Library Division of Library Development, as she dives into the makeup of the publishing industry. You will learn how to identify the difference between a diverse collection and an inclusive one and walk through the logistics of performing a diversity audit of your collection. The examples and resources provided in this session will focus on youth collections; however, the methodology of performing a diversity audit, and the reasons to do so, are universal to all collections.
This presentation is brought to you by the Connecticut State Library, in collaboration with the Indiana State Library, the Library of Michigan, and the State Library of Ohio, so come and be prepared to exchange ideas with library staff from across our three states.
Michigan library staff may register here: https://libraryofmichigan.app.neoncrm.com/np/clients/libraryofmichigan/event.jsp?event=2163&<https://gcc02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Flibraryofmichigan.app.neoncrm.com%2Fnp%2Fclients%2Flibraryofmichigan%2Fevent.jsp%3Fevent%3D2163%26&data=04%7C01%7Clancasterc5%40michigan.gov%7C32dc0459409241498d8008d97844f26c%7Cd5fb7087377742ad966a892ef47225d1%7C0%7C0%7C637673059803829361%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=Xs%2FuYI4xdcjJxlmx0he2ABs2Lf%2BuS8RfBpnLzOGTqcY%3D&reserved=0>.

Ready to Read Michigan Presents: Reimaging School Readiness<https://libraryofmichigan.app.neoncrm.com/np/clients/libraryofmichigan/event.jsp?event=2165>
January 20th and 27th, 2022
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET
Please plan to join us live for this 2-part series, offered by the Bay Area Discovery Museum, created to introduce librarians to the research, practical implications, and resources offered in their Reimagining School Readiness toolkit.
Research shows that beliefs about intelligence and ability impact one's performance and response to failure. Learn more about what research says, how to examine and change your own mindset, and what you can do to help support children's growth mindset and persistence through challenge.
Do you wonder what research really says about how to support school readiness? Based on a comprehensive review of cognitive and developmental psychology, the key findings in Reimagining School Readiness aim to surface the skills and conditions that matter most for a child's success in school and life, and to guide educators and others (including families) in designing learning experiences and environments to support this development.
Attendees will gain insights into the current research behind the skills and conditions that matter most for a child's success in school and life. The workshop will include an overview of BADM's Reimagining School Readiness Toolkit that library staff can use to supplement or create quality school readiness programming.
Instructor: Michelle Wessman Randall, PhD, Head of Evaluation at the Bay Area Discovery Museum (BADM) and BADM staff.
