This summer, we have one simple summer reading message for our students – we want you to read at least 20 minutes a day, every day. Books, eBooks, graphic novels, audio books, comics, magazines, newspapers – they all count! To help our students with this charge, we have had our students create their own summer reading lists. In the fall, we will have an End of Summer Reading Celebration complete with beach towels, cool treats and good times talking about our reading adventures.
To help you – we have added some of the lists we have on the summer reading website found on the Derby website.
We hope you all have a great summer – and happy reading!!!! – The Terry Library Staff
