Summer Reading 2021: Home

About Summer Reading

The library leaders are excited about continuing our sponsored summer reading program this year!

The idea is to engage the entire community in the summer reading list. Returning Urban students (current grades 9-11) 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 student 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 45 minutes. We hope this program will promote reading for fun and inter-grade camaraderie. We'll also meet briefly (and virtually) on May 28th to check in with our groups.

Take a look at the books on the list by clicking through the tabs above, and fill out the form below to select a book. Reading groups will be limited to 14 readers, so you may not get your first choice BUT THE SOONER YOU RESPOND, THE MORE LIKELY YOU'LL BE TO GET ONE OF YOUR TOP CHOICES. Please fill out the form by Friday, May 21st.  Happy reading!
