HI Anne, I create a large summer reading list and then I encourage all the
students to participate in their local public library summer reading
programs. I talk them up and then have the students bring me their summer
reading program forms, or lists and I give little prizes to those
participants in the fall. Since most summer reading programs have great
prizes I talk that part up as well to the students. Hope this helps. : Lisa

Hope this finds all you fabulous librarians thriving amidst this busy end

your school community.
Would anyone be willing to share ways that you encourage summer reading?
Do you collaborate with teachers on summer reading lists? Do you host a
challenge that you reward in the Fall?
One of my colleagues suggested running a challenge that would reward the
class who reads the most books over the Summer. I am picturing this for our
lower grades (1-5) but we also have middle school.
Thanks so much!
