Dear Bates Families,
I hope you are enjoying the first weeks of summer. In case you haven’t had the chance to see the summer reading resources sent home with students, below is the interactive library website with many great recommendations for students. You can also find this link through the Bates website under the Academics/Library tab.
It is our hope that all of our students will enjoy a summer filled with many good books. We have found that students who take a long break from reading over the summer may lose as much as 3-6 months of reading progress. Fortunately, the titles and book trailers on this site promise to entice even a reluctant summer reader! I recommend you bookmark this page and head to the nearest library!
