A Message to Parents of Incoming 1st Graders

Welcome first grade readers! You have been practicing choosing just right books from many fiction and nonfiction genres and have built stamina for reading at least 20 minutes at a time. We hope you will continue talking about reading with your friends and adults during the summer.

The Scranton Library is an invaluable resource to help you connect your child with books, ebooks, audiobooks, magazines and opportunities to spend time with other readers.

You are free to read whatever you enjoy! Readers read what they love!

Please help your child keep track of his reading by filling out a Summer Reading Recording Sheet of all titles that you've read together and submit it to his/her teacher in September.

Happy Reading!
