School Reading Lists

Looking for Mahwah schools’ summer reading lists?  You’ve come to the right place!  The Library has most of summer reading titles available in print, and many are available to download as eBooks. 

Elementary Schools

The elementary schools recommend that your child read 20 minutes a day at their level. It is important for children to read below their level to reinforce reading skills and to read above their level to challenge themselves.

The most important factor in encouraging reading is choice; children who choose what they are reading will be more motivated to read.

Our librarians are here to help your child find a book they love!
