Summer Reading Lists 2018

Libraries Rock!All students are to read over the summer in preparation for the start of the new school year. Teachers selected these books to interest students and to enrich their literary background. The Belmont Public Library will receive copies of this list. If at all possible, students should purchase copies of their summer reading books so that they can mark them up and use them at the start of school.

Students K - 5

The summer reading lists are a joint project of the Belmont Public Schools and the Belmont Public Library. They are designed to encourage students in Belmont to make reading a habit, raising both their interest in and level of reading. The following is a list of suggested books for your child's reading pleasure. For more recommendations, visit the Belmont Public Library Children's Room and talk with a librarian. Also be sure to sign up for the Library's Summer Reading Program. The theme this year is Libraries Rock!

Please, enjoy these books with your child.

Middle School

For your summer reading pleasure, we are sharing a list of some favorite books and authors suggested by teachers and students. Reviewed by librarians at Chenery Middle School and Belmont Public Library, these titles and authors are recommendations, not requirements. You are expected to read 3 books over the summer and to keep a list of the titles. The choice of reading material is up to you and your parents. We hope you will enjoy the time you spend reading over the summer.

Entering seventh and eighth graders are to read one required title and one suggested. Entering seventh graders have four choices for required reading (see below); all entering eighth graders will read The Giver, by Lois Lowry. Each required text will be used in the fall to begin the school year. Students may want to purchase their own copies to mark up.

High School

All students are to read over the summer in preparation for the start of the new school year.
