Another fine piece from TeachThought in spite of the promotional aspect of the post. As blended learning becomes a bigger part of the educational conversation, this is one to keep in mind.

The New York State Summer Reading website can be used as a portal to reading lists for collection development. The website provides three age categories: Birth to 5, Kids, and Teens. A few lists are New York State-themed but links to other lists compiled by others provide a wide range. Other sections provide reading activities. The website is regularly updated.

Natasha Ratajczek Pugh's insight:

More information re: Eli Neiburger, AADL associate director of IT and production's comment a"Y-library conference--Reading increased at Summer Reading Program when we took Reading out of the Summer Reading Program.


This article helps to contextualise this remark:


Neiburger described AADL’s game as a “summer using-the-library game” rather than a “summer reading game.” But de-emphasizing reading in the game marketing actuallyincreased reading.


Still, some of CPL’s patrons did feel that reading wasn’t emphasized enough in Connect Your Summer. “Reading was the first item on the list to earn every badge, and we had book recommendations for every badge, but some patrons didn’t realize it,” Golden said. Next year, she added, reading will be stressed a bit more.
