Linden Hall Library: Summer Reading & Varsity Reader

Summer Reading & Varsity Reader FAQ

  1. I am graduating but I would still like to be a Varsity Reader, am I eligible for the t-shirt? Yes, if you read and record the minimum number of 1000 pages you can receive a shirt. Mrs. Rhoades will mail it to you when the shirts are distributed on campus. 
  2. Can I choose any book I want to fulfill the Summer Reading requirement? Yes. You choose what you would like to read. You must record a minimum of 250 pages on the Microsoft form and be prepared to informally talk about one of the books you read. You will just have to tell 2 students in your grade / class what you liked or didn't like about the book (you can write down what you want to say, just please remember not to tell what happens at the end). The event will occur during a class meeting (date to be announced in the future). 
  3. When should I record the pages I have read? Returning and new students please use the forms located on this page https://lindenhall.libguides.com/Home/Summer_Reading_2020 to record the pages you have read. It is recommended that you record the book pages right after you are finished reading, but if that is not convenient for you, you can keep track of your books / pages and add them all at once (each book will require you complete a separate form). A deadline for page submissions will be sent out at a later date (after school starts in the fall). 
  4. Do I have to write an essay or do a project for any of the books over the summer? No. 
  5. Where can I access free books to read from home? Begin your search here... https://lindenhall.libguides.com/Home/Access_Books. If you have access, borrow eBooks from your local public library. 
  6. I like to read on my Kindle or using the Kindle app, but I can't see the number of pages in my eBook to record it? Please look the book title up on Amazon or another bookseller site and locate the number of pages in a print edition. Use that number to record pages read on the form.

Summer Reading 2020 & Varsity Reader Guidelines:

  1. You may start recording pages of a book you are currently reading. 
  2. Books being read as free reading for an English or ESL class count. Books assigned by faculty for class study do not count toward your page total. 
  3. To fulfill the Summer Reading requirement this year, we ask that you read a minimum of 250 pages and that you return to school in the fall prepared to informally talk about one of the books you read. You will just have to tell 2 students in your grade / class what you liked or didn't like about the book. This event will occur during a class meeting (date to be announced in the future). 
  4. If you read 1000 pages or more, you can qualify as a Varsity Reader
  5. After you finish reading, complete the Microsoft form located on this page and the count begins. 

Students, Faculty and Staff, who meet the minimum requirement of reading and recording 1000 or more pages, will receive a free Varsity Reader spirit wear shirt when we are all back on campus together. Varsity Readers will also get a special Spirit Wear Dress Down day to show off their new shirts.
