ALSC 2018 Summer Reading Lists Visit your local library

ALSC's Quicklists Consulting Committee has updated our Summer Reading Lists with new and exciting titles!

The lists are full of book titles to keep children engaged in reading throughout the summer. Four Summer Reading book lists are available for Birth-Preschool and grades K-2, 3-5 and 6-8.

Each list is available here to download for free. The interactive lists can be customized to include call numbers, library address, summer hours, and information about summer reading programs for children before making copies available to schools and patrons.

Titles on the 2018 Summer Reading Lists were compiled and annotated by members of ALSC’s Quicklists Consulting Committee.
