There are a lot of great summer reading options available to you this summer. Many have already started!
In our LSN library, starting May 17 you can check out as many print books as you want to be responsible for. You’ll need to bring them back the first day of school, or drop them off at the summer school library.
Our online eBook provider, Sora, has audio books and eBooks available 24/7. Plus, their Sweet Reads summer reading program gives you more than three dozen titles that are always available! This program runs now through early August. The thousands of books we’ve curated for high school students is always available on Sora!
Through Sora, you can also add the library: Audio Sync to get two free audio books every week.
