Summer Reading List

Here’s the 2018 Summer Reading List.

The books on this list are suggestions; you are welcome to read any grade-level appropriate book of your choice (in addition, rising 9th graders also must read The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henríquez). For all information about summer reading requirements, please consult the English Department’s summer reading page.

We library folks love buying books that students want to read. So, if you have read many–or any–great books lately, we want to know.

Please share your reading suggestions in person by talking to a library staff member, through the paper forms at the library desk or in the New Fiction area, or submit them to our virtual suggestion box. You may see your suggestion appear on our library shelves!


The Massachusetts School Library Association has awarded the Web Seal of Excellence to the LS Library website, created by our librarians Susan King and Paula Myers. According to the MSLA, this award “recognizes excellence in a school library’s use of web tools” and is based on criteria such as purpose and program, evidence of outreach and collaboration, design, navigation, and links. Way to go, LS!
