Linda has a fun-filled summer reading program planned. Children across New York will be invited to “Dream Big, READ!”

See for more information. Online sign-up will be available June 22. You can also sign up at Linda’s kick-off program on June 30.

Summer Reading ~ Explore New York

Posted by Ardyce on 15th June 2012

The New York State Library, in partnership with the New York Library Association’s Youth Services Section and School Library Media Section, presents selected reading lists that celebrate the history, culture, and diversity of New York State.

Librarians who work with children and teens in both public libraries and school libraries across the State collaborated to select age-appropriate titles for recreational reading. The four lists are designed for reading enjoyment, to provide a “flavor” of New York, and spark an interest in the fascinating story of New York State.

Each of the four lists covers one reader age group and features the age-appropriate Summer Reading at New York Libraries slogan:

These recreational reading lists were first created in 2009, prompted by the Quadricentennial of Henry Hudson and Samuel de Champlain’s voyages along the river and lake that bear their names. For this year’s update, titles were checked for availability in a majority of public library catalogs throughout New York State.
