Summer Reading 2017

The library leaders are excited about a implementing a new summer reading program this year!

The idea is to engage the entire community in the summer reading list. Returning Urban students (grades 9-11), as well as incoming freshman, will select a book to read over the summer from a list of several titles. Each of these titles is sponsored by Urban faculty, staff, or Library Leaders. You will pledge to read a book over the summer.

In the fall, we'll convene the reading groups to have a book club-style meeting that will last about an hour. We hope this program will promote reading for fun and inter-grade camaraderie.

Take a look at the books on the list by clicking through the tabs above. Then, you can fill out this form, noting which books you'd be interested in reading. Reading groups will be limited to 16 readers, so you may not get your first choice!
