What Books Should I Read This Summer?
Whatever ones you want! Funny picture books, time-traveling early chapter books, action-packed graphic novels, or post-apocalyptic teen dramas -- the Hoover Public Library has so many to choose from! We have traditional books plus audiobooks (on CD, Playaway, and downloadable) and ebooks (downloadable or check out a Nook). Actually, it can be a bit overwhelming. That's why I've compiled some lists to help you narrow down your choices. Here's a quick breakdown.
+ Online lists of books that are both excellent and tie-in to this year's Summer Reading theme: Picture Books for Preschool-Grade 2, Chapter Books for Grade 3-6, Teen Fiction for Grade 7-12
