NYC Summer Reading booklists

Summer is the time to read what you love - and love what you read! 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.

You can read what you like during the summer, but for tips on great books, try our recommendations:
