About the New Jersey Summer Reading Program

The New Jersey Summer Reading Program, coordinated by the New Jersey Statewide Summer Reading Committee and sponsored by both the NJ Library Association and the NJ State Library, encourages children and families to read for fun during the summer at their local public library. 

The NJ Summer Reading Program’s website is a resource for public library staff.  In order to assist public libraries in summer reading planning, the website maintains a directory of performers; programming ideas for children, teens and adults; information about discounts for summer reading prizes; registration information for summer reading workshops and a survey link for statistics from your program.

The Committee presents programs at NJLA and other State wide conferences. The liaison from the State Library and the chairs maintain a relationship with CSLP and represent the state of New Jersey at the CSLP annual conference.
