Get your student's summer reading books at the library

Posted on July 12, 2017 at 12:02 PM by Elizabeth Land

It seems like summer just began, but with the July Fourth holiday already behind us the summer is moving fast. If your child attends school in York County — or in one of the surrounding cities — chances are that he or she has some assignments to complete before school returns.

York County School Division LogoFor many middle- and high-schoolers in York County, this means they have to read at least one book from the York County Schools Summer Reading list.

York County Public Library has these students covered. We've got copies in different formats — from print to audio to downloadable eBooks — for every book on the list. 

If you don't see your book available in the online catalog, check out our honor shelves, which house books not listed in the catalog. The Tabb Branch has a Summer Reading shelf, with extra copies of the York County Schools Required Summer Reading 2015 list and a selection of honor books found on that list. Need motivation to get reading? How about using your book to fulfill the requirements for the Summer Reading Program? You get a chance to win a prize and get your homework out of the way before it's too late! Call 757-890-5100 or visit the online catalog to reserve your books today. Or stop by to browse the honor shelves.
