Summer's a great time for pleasure reading — that goes for kids and teens, too. There are no papers to write, no sigh-inducing reading logs. It's the perfect time of year to help kids slow down and develop a love of pleasure reading.
Thanks to a new partnership, opens a new window between the Cincinnati & Hamilton County Public Library and Cincinnati Public Schools (CPS), it's easier than ever for the district's students to check out library books. CPS students can access eBooks and eAudiobooks through the Sora app, opens a new window, no library card needed. Combine that with the fact that CPS students have been allowed to keep their pandemic-issued laptops and tablets over the summer, and it makes a trip to the Library as easy as turning on the device anywhere there's an internet connection. (Psst...there is free Wi-Fi, opens a new window at all library locations.)
In the spirit of the new partnership, the Library asked CPS librarians for their summer reading picks.
