Summer Library Printed Library Materials Order
The 2016 Summer Library Program Printed Materials Order Form is for librarians to order "free" materials provided by the State Library of Kansas, funded in part through a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the Central Kansas Library System.
Please complete and submit your order no later than Friday, October 30, 2015. Because of the shipping timeframe from Upstart, the Kansas State Library order is placed early enough so the materials arrive in spring of 2015.
Please order ONLY the number of materials you anticipate needing to run your program.
If you have any trouble submitting your Summer Library Program Order Form, please contact Patty Collins or Gail Santy.

After you complete and submit the Order Form you will receive an email with a pdf attachment with all the information you entered in the Order Form. You may print this pdf attachment for your paper records. You will also receive a personalized email confirming your entries.
Please note that you need to round up to the next whole number. For example, if you desire 9, enter 10, or if you desire 12, enter 20. If you desire to order none of an item, please enter "0" (note this is a zero and not the letter o).
Non-participation in the 2016 Summer Library Program means you will not receive the $200 CKLS Summer Library Program Incentive Grant. (See the CKLS 2016 System Plan.)
