Summer Reading Book Lists

Now that school is out, you may be asking yourself, "What books would be good for my child to read during the summer.  Well, look no further!  The library has exactly what you need.  The Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) has updated and released three Summer Reading lists. The lists are full of book titles that will definitely keep children engaged in reading throughout the summer.

Lists are available for K-8 students. Each is available to download for free in color and black and white.  The lists are available at:  Feel free to download them, or come visit the library and we'll have copies of the lists available.

"Summer reading helps prevent the summer slide that affects many children each year," said Starr LaTronica, ALSC president. "By encouraging children to stay engaged in reading throughout the summer at home and at their library they will be more prepared for the next school year."

The Summer Reading List was compiled and annotated by ALSC's Quicklists Consulting Committee and School-Age Programs and Services Committee through a 2013 Carnegie Whitney Grant funded by the American Library Association Publishing Committee. The 2014 list was updated by ALSC's Quicklists Consulting Committee.
