Summer Reading 2021

EPS K-12 Summer Reading News
This year’s national summer reading theme
: “Tails and Tales”!

Whether you like reading eBooks, audiobooks, or hard copy books, ALL the time you spend reading this summer will make you a stronger student!

You have so many resources to help you read throughout the summer:

  • As a resident of Connecticut, you can participate in CT Reads 2021: The Governor's Summer Reading Challenge. Use the printable or downloadable journal and return it to your school’s library this fall. Check out this Padlet for the journal and suggested summer reading books with summaries organized by grade.

  • Our Enfield Public Library provides inspiration, activities, and rewards for reading throughout the summer. Visit the Enfield Public Library for more information on their awesome programs, which kick-off on June 29th.

  • Use Sora, Tumblebooks/TeenBookCloud, and Hoopla to access eBooks and audiobooks throughout the summer. There are lots of titles to suit your interests, and you can read or listen to the same books as your friends if you use these resources!

  • Our local Barnes and Noble bookstore has a wide variety of books; if you read eight books or more, you can earn a free book by completing the summer reading journal.

    Educators will launch students into summer reading before the school year ends and celebrate reading accomplishments when we welcome students back in September.

    We invite you to write about your favorite summer reads by posting to one of our Padlets: EHS, JFK, Whitney, Crandall, Parkman, Barnard, Hazardville Memorial, or Enfield Street.
