Summer Books AY23

Summer Reading


Everyone knows that summer is a great time to pause and take a break from the routine of school.  As voracious readers, we librarians also know it's the best time to read for pleasure--catching up on a series that everyone is reading, finally getting to the most recent book in a series, and just diving into a book and emerging hours later having met interesting people and done things that could not be done in our daily lives.  We also know that sometimes you're in need of suggestions for yourself or others, so we've put together some recommended reading for all readers, from the incoming sixth grade through parents.  All the books recommended are available on SORA as an ebook, and many are also available as audiobooks (perfect for long car rides!).

Finding Books via SORA

MANY of these suggested titles are available on the SORA app  - they're all linked. Many of the audiobook versions are in the MLS Commonwealth collection - be sure to add that library to your app.


A very special thank you to Kelsey @Don't Shush Me for the great graphics
