Summer Reading

This month's newsletter is dedicated to summer reading. I want to encourage you to use your free time to get lost in a great book. On this page you will find some important information about using the online resources from the IMC as well as some suggestions to keep you reading during the summer months.

Don't forget you can always explore Destiny or Destiny Quest during the summer months. You can recommend books, write book reviews, and browse the library titles all through Destiny. Your log in is your district username and assigned password.

Summer Reading Lists

ALSC's Summer Reading List

Reading can be one of the many fun activities children fill their summer time with. Research has shown it is also much more! Children who participate in public library summer reading programs not only avoid the “summer slide” in learning, but also score higher on reading achievement tests than those who do not participate. The books on this list come highly recommended by kid readers from all over the country and may also be available in ebook, audio book, braille, and large print formats. This summer, encourage your child to participate in the summer programs happening at your library.
