100 Summer Reading Books in Your Hand

Summer is full of trips and plans making it tough to get those assigned summer reading books read. Especially when they have to be packed into suitcases!  Now the library offers another option. Take out one of our summer reading e-readers loaded with over one hundred books for grades seven through twelve. The readers can be taken out for two weeks (not renewable or reservable), perfect for a trip without bulky books or even a brief sleep away camp stint. Click here to see the entire catalog of available titles or stop by the reference desk.  (E-readers must be checked out to an adult over the age of 18.)
