Summer Reading at the Vineland Public Library

Just because it's summer doesn't mean you have to stop reading!  Stop by the Vineland Public Library to get your next great read.  Ask the librarians at the Information Desk or in the Children's Department for some great books to read.

Vineland Public School students entering sixth, seventh or eighth grade or high school are required to read one book and complete a project.  Click here to get your summer reading assignment.

The Vineland Public Library owns copies of the books on the Vineland Public School's reading lists.  Please inquire at the Information Desk if you need a book for your assignment.

To accommodate the most students, these books may only be checked out as a 2-week loan and may not be renewed.  Additional copies of some of the titles are available at the Information Desk and the Children's Information Desk, to be used in the library only.

If you have any questions or concerns about your summer reading project, or need to know your Lexile level, you may contact Ms. Nancy Hollenweger, Supervisor of Language Arts at the Vineland Public Schools, at (856) 794-6700 ext. 2328 or email her at nhollenweger@vineland.org.  Ms. Hollenweger will be able available Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Paddington by Michael Bond

Read the book then see the movie! Movie comes out Friday, December 12, 2014

With nothing but a suitcase, several jars of marmalade, and a label around his neck that read, "Please Look After This Bear," he stowed away on a ship headed for faraway England. When the little bear arrived at London's busy Paddington Station, he was discovered by Mr. and Mrs. Brown. As luck would have it, the Browns were just the sort of people to welcome a lost bear into their family. 

To reserve this book, or any of the Paddington Bear books, please call the Information Desk (856) 794-4244 ext. 4243

J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit

The 3rd movie in the trilogy comes out Wednesday, December 17, 2014

A great modern classic and the prelude to THE LORD OF THE RINGS
 
Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely traveling any farther than his pantry or cellar. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard Gandalf and a company of dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an adventure. They have launched a plot to raid the treasure hoard guarded by Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. Bilbo reluctantly joins their quest, unaware that on his journey to the Lonely Mountain he will encounter both a magic ring and a frightening creature known as Gollum.

To reserve this book, please call the Information Desk (856) 794-4244 ext. 4243
