Does your summer reading program have a theme? We are happy to help create selection lists to align with your theme as well; just ask! Also, if you are aligning with the national theme, check out our Fairytale and Folklore-themed selection lists on Title Source 360, where you’ll find titles in addition to those on the CSLP lists.

We’re thrilled to announce our 2020 Summer Reading Contest, where you’ll have a chance to win framed original artwork and autographed books from Emily Winfield Martin, as seen here! Enter to win here, and find the official rules here.

Don’t forget to download the activity sheets, featuring the artwork on Ms. Winfield, and let your young patrons imagine THEIR stories this summer too.


CATS Lease

Get books when they're hot, return them when they're not. What a great solution for high demand titles! Baker & Taylor's Book Leasing program is a great way to temporarily increase your library's number of popular books with the ability to return them when patron demand has subsided.

When you begin using our Book Leasing service, your library will build its own collection by retaining books ordered through the Monthly New Book Quota until your collection reaches its proper size. Each month, a pre-publication title list will be sent to you so that you may choose the titles you'd like to receive. All of your requested books will arrive shelf-ready, with all cataloging and processing completed to your specifications.

To learn more, click here to see our Book Leasing brochure. To receive email notification when a new Book Leasing Title List is available, please subscribe by visiting the Subscription Center. Email: [email protected]
