SummerReads 2020

At the Pike Library, we encourage students to read widely, whether it be a new genre or series, a book set in another country, or about a character different from themselves. By opening the pages of a novel or a picture book, we can travel to the Harlem Renaissance, to Hong Kong, or to Hogwarts, all courtesy of an author’s imagination. 

This year, all of our lists are just a click away. The multicolored links for 2020 highlight books that were published during the past year. We've also kept access to our 2019 lists that include extensive recommendations. Happy reading!

SummerReads are compiled by Pike Librarians Francesca Mellin and Linda Spence. They are updated annually with a commitment to representing multicultural and diverse perspectives.
