SF Day has teamed up with other independent schools in the Bay Area to get Overdrive. Now you can read eBooks from kindergarten to adult titles on virtually any device, including your phone, tablet, or computer. You'll need your library username and password - please see a librarian if you don't have one.
The 2019 Summer Reading Lists are here! These lists contain the latest titles curated for diversity, equity, and inclusion. I painstakingly debate each and every book, only selecting ones that yield a gender balanced list, provide a variety of genres, and implement a plethora of social identifiers. If you would like to view the analysis of any list, please let me know as I am more than happy to share them with anyone who is interested.
The Summer Reading Lists are recommendations based on interest level, not reading level. The lists are:
Reading is great for your brain anytime, but especially important during the summer when there tends to be a decline in reading ability called the summer slide. Therefore, students are encouraged to read and track their reading every day. Students who submit their reading logs to the library by September 6 will receive a reading award, a prize, and bag of “book” (gummy) worms (vegan upon request).
Please remember that the books on the lists are only suggestions and are not required. Support your student(s) by encouraging them to read what they enjoy over the summer and have relaxed conversations about their books. I wish you a summer filled with beloved books.
Yours in reading,
M. Renée Otero
