Avoid the Summer Slide and keep reading with your libraries! Check out the list of suggested summer reading from your school librarians. Then visit any branch of the Atlantic County Library for your free books, resources and Libraries Rock summer programs. Don’t forget to sign up for a library card if you don’t already have one.

Required Summer Reading

We are extremely excited to announce that this summer we will have required summer reading for all students in grades 6th through 12th. Research shows that reading over the summer reduces summer slide and promotes academic success throughout the school year. Students have spent the year in a reading workshop and to continue to foster that love of reading, we want students to choose a “just right” book to read over the summer. A "just right” is a book that the student has not already read in school, about something that he/she is interested in, and that he/she can read independently and with ease. Students will complete one assignment to accompany their book. The assignments are all activities and strategies the students have practiced throughout the year, and will help the students continue to implement and master reading strategies. Currently, students can sign up for an Atlantic County Library card digitally and access hundreds of ebooks for free.
