Howard County Public Library Summer Reading Program

Fri, 06/19/2020 - 9:54am

As part of the A+ Partnership with the Howard County Library System, summer reading lists developed by HCPSS library media specialists and Howard County Library System Children’s Instruction and Research staff are available for students in all grade levels. Books included are just a sampling of what students may enjoy reading during the summer. Students are encouraged to check out other books by the authors included, as well as explore additional book topics at the library.

Recommended lists for all grade levels are available both in schools and online.

All families are also invited to participate in the summer reading challenge to help make a difference In this challenging time for so many in our community. Beginning June 1, log books and activities in one of three games: Imagine Your Story (for infants to age 10 and ages 11 to 17) and Read for Good (for adults).

Instead of physical prizes upon completion, you will earn a donation to Community Action Council of Howard County.*
