Get inspired with summer reading selections from the Library.

Get inspired with summer reading selections from the Library.

When we started our first Summer Break challenge, our initial goal was to read 15 million minutes together. To date, we’ve read 1,450,111​ minutes. Let’s keep READING! 

If you need some inspiration for your next great read, or are just looking for something new and different, our librarians have carefully selected reading lists for all ages.  You certainly don’t have to read the books listed here, but if you do and you find something you like let us know on our Summer Break Story of Impact Form.  We always love to hear what you think! 

Adults Bibliocommons List

Teens Bibliocommons List

Childrens Bibliocommons List 

Do you need help selecting books for your young student?  Families have faced many challenges over the past few months but increased reading loss for kids this summer doesn’t have to be added to the list. Learn the most effective way to meet YOUR child’s specific reading needs with a #ReadingCheckup! It’s free of charge and for families with rising Kindergarten through 4th grade students. You can also find targeted activities to do with your child, or for them to do on their own, with Read Charlotte’s new resources and activities page#ReadCLT
