Summer Reading List

Reading is one of life’s great pleasures, like a cold drink on a hot day, or sharing a well prepared meal with family and friends. Summer’s scorching  days–of which there are plenty in Central Pennsylvania–are perfect for retreating to a cool spot with a good book.  Then again, when isn’t it a good time for a book?

Our friends at Schlow Centre Region Library looked through the 150,000 items available at the library or online, and offer reading lists for adults, teenagers, and children. The titles include both fiction and non-fiction. Clicking on the name of the book will take you to that item in the library’s catalog (or get it from your favorite book source).

Happy reading!
