Summer Reading - 2017

Silver Lake Regional Middle School

Welcome to our Summer Reading Page

Below is everything you need to know about our Summer Reading Program.

Registering for Book Discussion Groups

Hello and welcome back to school! You will be registering again for the summer reading book you actually read over the summer - we know that sometimes your titles get changed. You will be registering in school during the first few days of school. On this registration form you will also be letting us know if you read two or more of the summer reading books. If you read two or more of the summer books you will receive an invitation to the battle of the books. The registration form is on the Library Google Classroom which you all are a member of.

What books do you recommend for the Summer 2017 Reading List?

All 7th and 8th-grade students were asked to recommend titles to be on the list. We were looking for books that you thought your peers would enjoy reading over the summer.


And the results are in! We have 13 wonderful books on 2017 summer reading list - all recommended by you!

Getting your book!

Our local public libraries in the district are working with us to supply you with our Summer Reading Titles for loan. They are available both in print and digital format.


Holmes Public Library in Halifax

Plympton Public Library


The books are available for purchase through your regular vendors such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and your local bookstore.
