Lab librarians suggest summer books

Posted May 24 2012

"It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it." ~Oscar Wilde. Librarians are putting together summer reading suggestions for all age levels:

High School
High school summer reading suggestions will be available soon. The High School library webpage will feature lists of new titles, classics, and award winners.

Middle School
You will soon be able to access the Middle School summer reading lists on the Middle School library webpage. As part of a voluntary summer reading program, students will be able to submit online reviews and access a summer reading log to fill out and return to the library in September. We encourage you to let your children read anything and everything.

Kindergarten and Lower School
The summer reading list for Kindergarten through fourth (rising fifth) grade will be posted on the Blaine Library homepage during the last week of school. The summer reading list will also be available in hard copy on request.

Several online reading resources are also accessible through the library's homepage. These include the beautifully produced classic picture books and early non-fiction readers of BookFlix, the wider age range offerings of TumbleBook Library and TrueFlix, a series of accessible nonfiction books. Click on "Access From Home" on the library homepage to learn the necessary login information.

Information about the Chicago Public Library's summer reading program is online.
