Summer Reading 2023


For Teachers

Welcome to, the summer reading website of the three NYC public library systems: Brooklyn Public Library, The New York Public Library and Queens Public Library in partnership with the NYC Department of Education. The New York City summer reading program is designed to fight “Summer Slide,” the phenomenon where students who don’t read over the summer lose some of the reading skills they developed during the previous school year. Those skills must then be re-taught starting in September when students return to school.

While our libraries are closed, please visit the following online programs designed to provide the engagement and fun activities your students need this summer.
