Summer Reading Survey Info

The 2024 Summer Reading Survey is due Sept 9.

  • The survey can be found in Counting Opinions by logging in with your single sign-on. If you cannot recall what email you have used previously to access Counting Opinions, please contact Amanda Raiche or Shawn Behrends.
  • The survey opens each year in late May and we encourage you to log into Counting Opinions to check it out before summer and familiarize yourself with the information we are requesting. It will make filling it out at the end of summer easier if you are prepared and have been collecting the appropriate stats throughout your program. 
  • All SD public libraries that submit the 2024 Summer Reading Survey will receive the 2025 CSLP Summer Reading manual access code. **Even if your library did not hold a summer program this year, a survey must still be submitted in order to receive next summer's manual! Simply note that you did not hold a summer program by clicking the provided boxes within the survey.

  •  2025 manual codes will be sent out via email this October to the staff person listed in the survey.
