Summer Reading at Liverpool High School
Research has shown that the summer months out of school can cause a decline in student skills. To combat this loss, as well as to remind students of the enjoyment that can come from reading a good book, Liverpool High School students are asked to do some "summer reading". The requirements vary based on the grade the student is entering in September.
Summer Reading at New York Libraries
Summer Reading at New York Libraries is a free, annual program that gives children the opportunity to access the vast resources of New York's public libraries to support summer reading. This year's summer reading program slogan is "Libraries Rock!" Children and teens participating in the program receive book recommendations and engage in creative and fun educational activities at their local libraries. Together, we can keep students reading and learning all summer long and help prevent summer slide.
This year, NYSED is partnering with myOn to bring digital books to children via unlimited access to the myOn digital library at school and at their local public library. The myOn library has a collection of over 6,000 fiction and nonfiction e-books geared toward children from birth to 8th grade, many with recorded audio and other useful features. The NYSED Summer Reading pilot partnership with myOn will run through September. Be sure to check it out!
