Summer 2017 Guide: Reading

Stuck on what to read?

If you haven't already checked out your public library, have a look at their website or pop in. There are numerous lists compiled by the librarians in your local public library or 
online just for you! For an example, see the homepage of Brockville Public Library's catalog. The page lists new arrivals from junior to adult fiction and recommendations 
from BPL employees.

Still need a recommendation?

Below you will find a toolkit for summer reading and book lists containing recommended reads.
