NYC Summer Reading booklistsA Universe of Stories

This year's Summer Reading booklists are created by librarians from Brooklyn Public Library and New York Public Library. Students will have a better chance of finding these books at the library because we have many copies available.

Teachers and Community Leaders

A Universe of StoriesIn 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 at the library. Please contact your local neighborhood library or write us at to schedule a visit.

This easy-to-use database includes lesson plans, QR code flyers, video book trailers, and original movies and audio recordings with exceptional authors and illustrators. logog
