Summer Reading

2015 Summer Reading Program

Summer is a wonderful time to relax with a good book -- or several good books! Summer reading supports and builds on lessons of the previous school year and prepares students for success in the year ahead.

 

Albany High School students

Summer reading is required for high school students, who have to read at least one suggested book and complete a writing project that will be graded. Albany High School English teachers held book talks with students during May and June, and you can visit the Albany High Summer Reading site for complete information.

 

For elementary and middle-school students, the City School District of Albany ELA team is excited to announce that we are partnering with Albany Public Library this summer! Please read on to learn more.

 

Elementary, middle-school students

The City School District of Albany ELA team is excited to announce that the district is partnering with Albany Public Library this summer!

 

The Albany Public Library Reading Program encourages students to read whatever books they like. They are rewarded for their efforts with small prizes and lots of praise from Youth Services librarians! The librarians will be talking to kids about the books they’re reading for the summer and helping them find the next great book that will get them excited about reading.

 

The Albany Public Library Reading Program takes place from June 27-Aug. 22. Albany Public Library librarians visited all K-7 classrooms across the school district in the spring. The librarians introduced this program and gave book talks on new literature for kids and teens.

 

Please visit the Albany Public Library Summer Reading Program site for more information.
