Elementary School Summer Reading Program
The West Hartford Public Schools and the West Hartford Public Library work together to develop the Pre-K-5 summer reading program. Each year we select a new theme and provide a suggested list of authors and titles. Librarians from the West Hartford Public Library create a digital presentation which is shared with the schools to introduce the summer reading theme.

 

 

 

 

 

Since we participate in the Governor's Summer Reading Challenge we ask students to submit a reading log. Students in grades 3-5 will submit their logs online at the West Hartford Public Library Children & Teens Summer Reading page.

 

 

Students in grades PreK-2 will receive print reading logs, but may also choose to try the online log.

 

For any student who prefers to use a print reading log please click on this link to print a copy. 

Grades PreK-5 Reading Log

 

Print reading logs may be returned to the student's classroom teacher in September.
