Hot and Cool Summer Reads 2020


All year, we read through tons of the latest books for kids and young adults to find the best books for you to read during the summer. This year’s lists have something for everyone--friendship, mystery, romance, ghosts, and aliens. You can check out and read eBooks and audiobooks right now, and you can request books and pick them up after you get an email saying they are ready. 

Hot Summer Reads for grades 6-8 feature a not-so-perfect future Chicago, a restless ghost, two babysitters who are not what they seem, and a K-pop romance. Watch your favorite librarians tell you all about it! 

Cool Summer Reads for grades 3-5 include a story about humans moving to a planet where they are the aliens, a tale where disaster strikes when a girl rubs an ancient cursed lamp, and an edge-of-your-seat adventure featuring three siblings who find they have doubles with the same names, birthdays, and faces. Some familiar faces are here to give you all the dish.


We’d love to hear how you like them at Chat with a Children's Librarian. Happy Reading!
