Today is Read Where You Are day! It is the U.S. Department of Education’s annual call to action that encourages everyone to read more outside of school, especially over the summer months. Participating is easy! All you need to do is snap a picture of yourself at your favorite reading spot and use the hashtag #ReadWhereYouAre.
Our Summer Reading Program, On Your Mark, Get Set, Read, is a chance to read some great books and earn prizes at the same time.
Here are links to two book lists if you just aren’t sure what to read this summer. The links will take you to our online catalog where you can find out more about the title and if you would like to read it you can place it on hold and we will send it to you.
