Summer Reading 2024-2025

Recommendation:  Students are encouraged to read ONE book from the list for their grade in the 2024-25 school year.  Books are available at the Batavia Public Library and other area libraries. Audiobooks and e-books are also available for many of the selections.  The books are high-interest titles and were selected with input from staff and students.  Students can access e-books and audiobooks from the BHS LRC webpage.  There are instructions on the page about how to set up a free Boundless account.

Incentives:  Students are also encouraged to read TWO more books of their choice and to earn incentive prizes through the Teen Summer Reading program at Batavia Public Library or the student’s public library.                                                                                                     

Why read during the summer?  Reading during the summer encourages the habit of reading.  Like athletes, musicians, and artists, readers need to practice to maintain and improve their skills.  Also, summer is a great time to discover new books, perhaps the book behind a movie blockbuster or the book that everyone is discussing.  Participation in a public library’s Teen Summer Reading program helps students develop lifelong learning skills!
