Region 15 Suggested Summer Reading Lists

Your librarians and teachers have put together suggested reading lists to give you some reading recommendations over the summer. There's something for everyone, including classic and new titles. Take a look and see what books interest you. Contact us or put them on hold yourself and schedule a pickup time. 

Region 15 does not have a recreational reading list for high schoolers this year, though we are very happy to help you find books that will interest you. For class-specific assignments at Pomperaug High School, please visit your Google Classroom page. If you are having difficulty accessing what you need, contact PHS's guidance department at 203-262-3238.
