Summer Reading 2024

Grades K-5

Elementary school students are encouraged to read for at least 20 minutes each day!

Use our Summer Reading Star Chart to explore ways to make reading even more fun! Keep track of the books you read so you can talk about them with your friends and teachers in September. Find even more summer learning activities below.

We also encourage students to follow the Cambridge Public Library (CPL) Summer Reading BINGO Program. Pick up a bingo board from any CPL location – then complete the reading challenges and fill out your bingo board for a chance to win prizes!
