Summer Reading

Summer Reading Month
  • NEISD librarians have chosen some great new reads we think you will enjoy! These lists represent a wide variety of reading levels, genres, points of view, and ideas. While not every book will appeal to every reader, we are hopeful that every reader will be able to find at least one book to enjoy.

    Sizzling Summer Reads

    Have some Lotería fun by selecting books from the different categories to read. Click on the areas below to search by title, level, or what kind of book you'd like to read. 

    • Search the Sizzling Summer Reads for suggested titles available in Sora.
      • To borrow a book or view more information, click on the title. 
      • Select Read Me! if you would like to check out the book. Sign into Overdrive with your NEISD username and password to borrow the book.  
      • If a title is not available, please place a hold on it.  Library Services will monitor the holds and purchase additional copies of popular titles.
      • Please return the title early if finished, otherwise, the title will return automatically when the checkout period is over.
    • Click below to make your own copy of a summer reading Lotería board for your age level. Record the books and eBooks you read on your Lotería board and return it to your librarian.
    • You can also use these titles to support any summer reading promotion from your own campus.
