Summer Reading

Help the development of skills and a life-long love for reading

Elementary School List | Middle School List | High School List

With the help of the Guilderland School Librarians, this Recommended Reading page was created to present current, relevant and high-interest literature to help students discover, think, and broaden their vocabulary.

In addition, we encourage students to check out audio and ebook options that are available through both the school and public libraries. Students will find they have access to several ebooks right through their library catalog. To access the titles, they will need to log into the catalog, which you can find on your school’s library web page. If your student needs any assistance accessing any of these resources, please feel free to contact their librarian for assistance. 

SORA available to GCSD Students

Another resource available to our students is SORA. Many of the books on these readings lists are available through SORA.  

Sora is a platform that provides audio and ebooks for district users. Students simply identify Guilderland as their school and use their school id to obtain access. Please note the public library’s version of SORA is different, but both accounts can be accessed through the school login, once linked.
