Hello, Glenbardians! We are encouraging students & staff to #ReadOn and read widely this summer and throughout the next school year. Challenge participants will read at least 1 book from 5 of the 20 challenges below (feel free to #ReadOn after 5 books for more chances to win prizes). Choose your own titles that fulfill the categories or use this document to view some of our recommend reads. Many of our suggestions include easy to access Overdrive eBooks and audiobooks! We will continue to update this list with new titles throughout the 2018-2019 school year.
