Summer Reading 2016

Summer Reading...Ready, Set, Read!

We encourage all students at Alexander Doniphan to continue reading during the summer.  Continuing reading over the summer months can help enable your child to become a life-long reader and to help reduce the chances of reading loss while school is out of session.  An easy way to do this is to sign up for the Mid-Continent summer reading program.  You can do this by visiting any Mid-Continent branch or the Mid-Continent Public Library website.  You can read any books you have at home, books from the public library, ebooks and more!  The sky's the limit!  Students can log the books they have read on their own list or on the Mid-Continent Summer Reading website.  

Mid-Continent Summer Reading Program

A representative from Mid-Continent Public Library will be visiting AD in the middle of May to explain their summer reading program to our students.  Your child will be bringing information home all about how to get signed up!  It is a great program that I highly suggest you take advantage of.

Mark Twain and GKCR Award Books

If you plan on getting started reading the award books for next year, be sure to take the quiz for each book you read.  The quizzes are already available on our Reading Awards Program Page or on the Quick Links section on the AD LMC homepage.  

Summer Reading Books

If you are needing books to read this summer, you are welcome to do an extended checkout from our library here at AD.  Students may check out 5 or 10 books to read over the summer.  A permission slip will be coming home in the middle of May.  Fill it out, return it, and we will have a time for those students to checkout their books for the summer.


If you are attending Summer School, you may also checkout books at the end of the Summer School session.
