Summer Reading 2018

Summer is an important time for students to keep reading and improve their language skills.  Here are some ways to keep your child “rockin with books” all Summer long!


  • Our local Miller Branch of the Howard County Library will visit us here at HSES on Tuesdsay, June 5th to share about the FREE Summer Reading Program.  The Libraries Rock! Program kicks off at the Miller Branch on Saturday, June 2nd and is for all ages - children, teens, and adults.  Participate in activities, crafts, and games. Enjoy the music of live bands: School of Rock House Band and Charm City Junction.  Activities include Kindness Rocks, crafts for children; and Rock Band for teens. 10 am - 2 pm. You can also register at any Howard County Library Branch.  (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.
  • Capstone is offering FREE access to Capstone Interactive all Summer!  Starting today, students can access thousands of books, where ever they are!
    • School: Great for those last few weeks when they can't check out books
    • Home: Any computer or internet connected device will be able to access every book available
    • On-the-go: With the Capstone Interactive App, students can download books for offline reading!

  • Finally, a recommended book list for summer reading is coming home in Take Home Folders this week. The lists are developed by Howard County Public School Library Media Specialists and Howard County Library Children's Instruction and Research Staff. The titles included are just a sampling of the books your child may enjoy reading during the summer.  Many of the authors on the list have written more than one book. Check out some of those titles, too! Online versions of the book lists may be found at (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.
