The Small Virtual Library
Summer Reading Edition 2022
All about Summer Reading!
Welcome to the LAST Small Virtual Library of the 2021-22 school year! I hope you have enjoyed them as much as I have enjoyed creating them each month.
This Small Virtual Library is all about summer reading to help you stay entertained and keep your brain engaged!
Need something before we leave for summer break? Come by the library or contact me via email (you will find my contact info at the bottom of the Smore.) I would love to help you find resources for summer reading or answer any questions you might have!
Be sure you check the ebook info page for how to access books ALL SUMMER and the Sora usernames and passwords.
General Summer Reading Info
Why should we read over the summer?
What you need to know: reading SHOULD be an enjoyable way for you to be entertained while engaging your brain in ways that video games, TV, movies, videos (I'm looking at you TikTok and YouTube), even audio books, cannot. If you're not enjoying reading, you haven't found the right book. You don't have to follow a program or read for prizes, just READ!
