CSLP 2026 Slogan and 2027 Theme Listening Sessions Save the Date!
Thursday, August 24 ~ 1pm Eastern
Friday, September 08 ~ 3pm Eastern
These listening sessions are an opportunity for all CSLP member libraries to advocate for their favorite slogan and theme but also, to hear a variety of perspectives from others. Talk up your favorite 2026 Slogan and 2027 Theme from the vetted and translated voting slate.
How are the Listening Sessions different from the previous Wordsmithing sessions? The longer list of possible slogans has now been reviewed for copyright, trademark and translated into Spanish. We will not be tweaking verbiage or revising the options at this stage. These sessions are YOUR opportunity to build support for your favorites.
State Reps will be listening and then casting their votes at the CSLP Virtual Annual Meeting. Make sure to reach out to your state rep by September 13 and let them know your favorites too!
