Summer Reads

Summer is a good time for reading. Whether you want something light or life-changing to read on the beach or your bedroom, there are about four million lists of summer reads floating around on the internet.

There’s a little overlap (State of Wonder by Ann Patchett  is on pretty much every list), but perusing lists is a great way to stumble upon new books. You can see SMCL’s summer reading list and even add to it by tagging your favorite books with the word “summer.” Here’s a quick screencast on how to start tagging.


Not Just for Kids

The Library’s Summer Reading Program is not just for kids (though the programs for kids and teens are awesome). SMCL also has a great Summer Reading Program for adults--just sign up at your library and then submit the titles and comments on the books you’ve read to enter the weekly drawing. There are also lots of exciting events at the Library for all ages this summer.
