CMLE libraries – are you using the iREAD summer resources?? There are all kinds of great links and information here – to help encourage summer reading, to offer summer meals, and more!

The 2017 material is all set up, and now they want you to help contribute information to make the 2018 program fantastic!

The theme for the 2018 iREAD Resource Guide is Reading Takes You Everywhere. We need all of your great ideas to share with librarians around the world who use the iREAD theme. Each idea submitted helps to strengthen the Resource Guide.

You could WIN a gift certificate to the iREAD store for submitting an idea! Five random winners will be drawn from the list of people who contribute to the 2018 iREAD Resource Guide by the above deadline. Winners will be notified in March 2017 and the gift certificate can be used for products from the iREAD catalog for either 2017 or 2018.
