Suggested Summer Reading from the Librarians

 Dear Students & Parents, 

Summer is the perfect time to catch up on some reading.  Not only is reading during the summer months an important way to keep up all the hard-earned skills we've practiced during the school year, it is also a great way to relax, unwind, and have fun.  

This year we are very excited about the New York public library systems' summer reading program: -- This is a safe, fun social networking site where students can create avatars, share what they're reading/watching/listening to, and earn badges.  
We hope you stay safe and enjoy your summer.  Happy Reading!
In Friendship,  The BFS Library Department
