More about the Summer @ Your Library Quality Principles and Indicators

Summer @ Your Library in California is a time of celebration, community-building, playing, learning, and reading. The Summer @ Your Library quality principles and indicators have been developed to showcase summer programs in California libraries and to help library staff demonstrate and maintain the value and impact of their programs.

A working group of California librarians partnered with the California Library Association and its Summer @ Your Library project to develop the quality principles and indicators. Working group members and CLA and California State Library staff gathered feedback from colleagues throughout the state to develop a set of principles and indicators that reflect and represent Summer @ Your Library across the state.

The quality principles are available at: http://calchallenge.org/resources/quality/
