Summer Reading List

ALSC's Quicklists Consulting Committee and School-Age Programs and Services Committee released these lists in April 2013, recommending book titles to keep children engaged in reading throughout the summer.  Three Summer Reading book lists are available for K-2nd, 3rd- 5th and 6th-8th grade students.

Each list is available here to download for free in color and black and white.  Lists can be customized to include library information, summer hours and summer reading programs for children before making copies available to schools and patrons.

This project was supported by a Carnegie-Whitney Grant from the American Library Association.
