Conference Committee Members, Opinions Needed

All SLRI members are invited to fill out this survey about timing and topic preferences for conferences.
Reading Week Timing Is Up to Schools
Last year, when the Rhode Island State Council of the International Literacy Association became inactive, the Office of Library and Information Services (OLIS) and SLRI continued the tradition of Reading Week by aligning the celebration with the statewide Summer Reading Program slogan and providing resources such as artwork and activity materials.
Unfortunately, SLRI and OLIS are no longer able to organize Reading Week at this time. We encourage schools to celebrate Reading Week at a time and in a manner that best suits their community.
We encourage schools to partner with your local public library to connect Reading Week with the Summer Reading Program. The theme is music, which ties into the Kids Reading Across Rhode Island selection The First Rule of Punk by Celia C. Perez. This is a great opportunity to collaborate on recommended reading lists, team up for joint programming, and promote literacy both in and out of school.
