Many Lafourche Parish schools provide summer reading lists for students to increase literacy skills and to encourage the worthy practice of reading. The Lafourche Parish Library has acquired lists from some or our area schools and we are happy to say that the library has a majority of the titles that are listed. These titles are available in a variety of formats including print books, Books on CD, eBooks, and eAudiobooks. Don’t forget that you can download any eBook or eAudiobook title directly to your iPhone, iPad, or other eReading device. And if you are enrolled in the library’s Summer Reading Program, “Fizz, Boom, Read! ™” for kids and “Spark a Reaction™!” for teens, these books count towards your reading log totals.
If you don’t see a title from your school’s reading list in our catalog, you can request that the library purchase the title by using our online request form available on the library’s website www.lafourche.org. From the main menu located towards the top of the webpage, click on Using the Library, and then New Item Requests. Fill out the form and put a note in the comments field that the title you are requesting is on a school reading list. The request goes directly to the acquisitions librarian who makes the determination on whether to purchase the book.
For a list of school summer reading list titles that the Lafourche Parish Library owns, go to our Library Staff Picks blog found under the Staff Services link on the library webpage. Please email your school library reading lists to email@example.com so that the library can be sure to acquire any titles we may not have and to add additional titles to our blog.
