How the APL  Summer Reading Works

Summer of Roland Smith for rising Discovery 4th and 5th graders

In early October we will be having a skype visit with author Roland Smith in the library. Ten copies of five Roland Smith books will be available for student book checkout from the front office all summer long – Peak, Storm Runners, IQ: Independence Hall, Captain’s Dog, and Cryptid Hunters.  There will also be ten copies of five Virginia Readers’ Choice books available – They Didn’t Teach This In Worm School, Loser’s Club, Lemons, Henry Whisters, Shadows at Jamestown.

Lunch Time Diversity Book Clubs – will continue in September 2019

Read a book about someone different than you!
