YOUTH SUMMER READING LIST 2019


Are you ready to read? Check for your school below to find your summer reading information. Then be sure to visit us at the Library to sign up for the Youth Summer Reading Program, so you can "Read and Bead" an awesome necklace or keychain!

6th-8th Graders at Easton Middle School

All students entering grades 6-8 are participating in the “One School, One Book” summer reading initiative, and will be reading The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl by Stacy McAnulty! Visit our catalog to place your hold.

3rd-5th Graders at Richardson Olmsted Elementary

Read at least TWO books of YOUR choice! (If you’re stumped for ideas, ask Miss Jess in Youth Services for suggestions.) You will have two half-page writing prompts. Here is the "Summer Reading for RO Students" information packet (please disregard references to "third graders" - this information applies to ALL grades, 3-5).

Kindergarten through 2nd Graders

Center School Elementary, Moreau Hall Elementary, and Parkview Elementary are encouraged to read, read, READ! Join the library's Read and Bead program to earn beads while you track time spent reading. Come in to the Youth Services department to find out more!
