NH Summer Reading Program
Sponsored by CLNH (Children's Librarians of NH, a section of the NH Library Association), the NH Summer Reading Program takes place in libraries around the state. As a member of the Collaborative Summer Library Program, CLNH provides libraries with resources for offering high quality summer reading programs to their communities. Deborah Dutcher acts as the State Representative to CSLP and helps CLNH coordinate the summer reading program. Kids, Books and the Arts, another project co-sponsored by the NH State Library and CHILIS, is done in conjunction with the NH Summer Reading Program. Please contact the State Library for more information about summer reading in NH.
