Summer Reading Lists
LOWER SCHOOL SUMMER READING
Lower School students are not required to read any specific titles, but we ask that students read at least three books. The following lists serve as suggestions; we encourage readers to find books that align best with their interests and reading level.
Non-Fiction Suggestions (All Lower School Grades)
MIDDLE SCHOOL SUMMER READING
Middle school students are required to read at least three novel-length books this summer. One required book is assigned by grade level, at least one book should be selected from the “Independent Summer Reading” list, and the last book can be independently chosen.
UPPER SCHOOL SUMMER READING
Upper School students are asked to read at least three books this summer. “Upper School Required Summer Reading” outlines any texts required for specific classes, and, if assigned less than three required reading books, each student should select at least one book from the “Independent Summer Reading” list for their grade level.
Here you can access a variety of e-books, e-audiobooks, and Read-Alongs (narrated e-books) for grades K-12. Access them at home on your e-reader or computer so you can read anywhere, anytime. Select Harley School from the drop-down menu when you follow the link, and ask in the library for your log-in information if you don’t already have it.

Rosen Learning Center (Username: monroe1 Password: Boces)
This is an e-book collection through our local BOCES, which includes non-fiction books about subject areas including history (ancient civilizations, America, and New York State), science (Earth, space, ecology, life science), and technology (coding).
Older literature loses its copyright after a number of years so it can legally be published in the ‘Public Domain’ for free. At Project Gutenberg, you can find over 54,000 e-books of classic literature by authors like Shakespeare, Jane Austen, and Charles Dickens, or classic children’s series like The Wizard of Oz, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, and Anne of Green Gables.
The library subscribes to a number of monthly, bimonthly, and quarterly periodicals.
