Summer Reading


Posted by katyelemlibrary | Posted in Book Talks, Digital, General | Posted on May 31, 2016

Each summer many students experience the “summer slide”.  This happens when students do not read for three months.  Scholastic has an excellent article about this topic with suggestions of getting in some reading over the summer and can be found here.  You can help avoid the summer slide by visiting the public library and checking out books.  If you need suggestions of books to read, the Katy ISD Librarians have compiled a Suggested Summer Reading List for each grade level.  You may find the lists by clicking here or on the link to the right.

You may also access the KE Library ebooks on an iOS or Android device by following these steps:

  • Download these free apps:  Follett Brytewave K-12 Edition and MackinVIA
  • Open the Follett Brytewave app.  Type in your school name and your KISD username and password.
  • Find an ebook or interactive book you would like to read, tap the open button and check it out.

In the MackinVIA app, enter your school name,  then enter your KISD username and password.

The Katy branch of the Harris County Library is hosting its annual Summer Reading Program.  You may register to participate and log the books you have read.  There is also a schedule of events with programs geared toward elementary aged children.   Katy Branch Schedule of Events
