Summer Reading 2012!

Can you believe that it is already summer?

WMS reads all year 'round.

Information about Summer Reading and Book Buzz forms can be found on the school website.

The Summer Reading page has a list of book suggestions to get you started. You'll notice that you can click on the tabs to access the list in alphabetical order by author, title or genre.

Remember that you also can click on the Reading link above for additional booklists and award-winners.

Also, don't forget that the WPL lends out audiobooks and ebooks that you can read on your device via Overdrive. Use your library card from anywhere with an internet connection.

Finally, you can use your WPL card to use NoveList K-8 for recommendations.

We wish you a fantastic summer full of wonderful books and look forward to sharing in the fall!
