Read Me: Book Lists
Reading is good for all ages...We've got lots of data to share, but these 6 simple (but awesome) reasons reading is good sums it up quite nicely.
Librarians (especially those of us who work with children & youth) look at summer as a time to really connect with our patrons. We look forward to providing engaging enrichment programming, facilitating the very best kind of learning: internal motivation. Read what you want, when you want. Read in a tree, read on the floor, read while you exercise, read while you cook. Read aloud to the dog, read online with a friend. Doesn't matter what you choose---books, ebooks, audiobooks, graphic novels, newspapers, magazines, cereal boxes, instruction manuals, reviews, posts, blogs---just Read!
This year things are looking a bit different, more collaboration between libraries & community partners to bring programs to you despite the necessity for social distancing. If you have not yet done so, please take a moment & register to participate in the 2020 Online Summer Reading Program.
So without further ado, we've put together a few lists recommended by teachers & librarians to help ya get started:
