Recommended Reading Lists

Book Lists


CPS Libraries curates and gathers recommended lists to support the informational and reading needs of our students. The CPS recommended reading lists are developed by teams of librarians and are customized to the particular needs of students in the Chicago Public Schools. Other reading lists include those from the State of Illinois Kids' Choice Awards, the Illinois Reading Council, School Library Journal, and more. You can contact any CPS strategic source library book vendor if you are interested in purchasing any of these books for your school or classroom library collections. You can find vendor information and review pricing in Marketplace. To place an order, please visit Oracle iProcurement.
