Summer Reading (But not Entirely About SRP)
July 06, 2011
Independence Day is past, summer has begun its downward spiral to August, and alas, the dreaded time known as Back to School. That time that seemed an impossibly long way away back when school let out in May is coming, and it will be here before you know it.
Now is not the time to panic. There is still plenty of summer left to enjoy, but now is the time to take a look at that summer reading list you may have gotten on your way out of the classroom door. At the risk of sounding like a parent (which, for the record, I’m not), the best time to get that reading done is the month of July.
Think about it – just two or three books to read and then you have the remainder of your vacation to enjoy without the dreaded reading waiting for you. You say you have too much to do and not enough time to do it? Don’t panic! Your local MCPL branch might carry that long book by a Russian author whose name is hard to pronounce in audiobook form, or you can order it from a branch that does!
You can also use your required summer reading from your teachers to count towards time on your list for the Summer Reading Program! Remember, the program draws to a close at the end of this month!
