NYC Summer Reading 2015 booklists

Teachers and Community Leaders

  • In late May and June, our Librarians visit schools, child care centers and community groups to bring free booklists and other giveaways. We give entertaining booktalks, read stories, and tell students about our free summer activities and the Summer Reading website, Please contact your local neighborhood library or write us at to schedule a visit.
  • The NYC Summer Reading booklists are made by Librarians from the three public library systems (Brooklyn Public Library, New York Public Library, and Queens Library) and the Department of Education's School Library Services office. Your students will have a good chance of finding these books at the library because we have many copies available. 
  • If you recommend other Summer Reading books to your students, be sure that there are enough copies available in the public library. Check the Brooklyn Public Library catalog first at
