If you’re like me and tend to leave assignments to the very end, then you may have some last minute summer reading to do!  Be sure to check out our high school summer reading lists.

If you don’t see  the title you need on the list, then try searching our catalog.

Also, if you’re in middle or junior high school then be sure to check out the Rebecca Caudill nominees; you’ve got a bit more time to read them.
