Summer Reading 2014
Summer Reading begins June 5, 2014!
Sign up for Summer Reading at your library or online at www.summerreading.org.
Summer Reading is a great way to connect with other readers and read what you want at your own pace. You can also participate in fun, free activities. For events for all ages throughout the summer, visit our events calendar.
Read your way to fun prizes!

Teachers and Community Leaders
- In June our Librarians visit schools, child care centers and community groups to bring free booklists and other giveaways. We give entertaining booktalks, read stories, and tell students about our free summer activities and the Summer Reading website, www.summerreading.org. Please contact your local neighborhood library or write us at email@example.com to schedule a visit.
- The NYC Summer Reading booklists are made by Librarians from the three public library systems (Brooklyn Public Library, New York Public Library, and Queens Library) and the Department of Education's School Library Services office. Your students will have a good chance of finding these books at the library because we have many copies available.
This easy-to-use database includes lesson plans, QR code flyers, video book trailers, and original movies and audio recordings with exceptional authors and illustrators.
If you recommend other Summer Reading books to your students, be sure that there are enough copies available in the public library. Check the Brooklyn Public Library catalog first at http://brooklyn.bibliocommons.com/.
