Teen Summer Reading Assignments

Teen Summer Reading Assignments

It is time for the yearly summer reading assignment for students in grades 9-12 at Plainfield Community Schools.  Teen Central staff has collected all available copies of the book options and placed them near the new book shelf and non-fiction shelf in Teen Central. You may put them on hold and pick them up with our curbside pickup option, or you may grab them in person once the library reopens to the public on June 15th. Digital copies, as either ebooks or audiobooks, are available for many of the books. You can access them on your computer or using the Libby app on a smart device. One other option for ebooks is Freading, a digital service provided by the library. The list below includes the titles available in print at the library and the digital options available.
