    The 2013 East Lyme High School Summer Reading list celebrates literature that has been recognized by the American Library Association (ALA) as noteworthy for its excellence. 

    In addition to ALA recommended titles, the 2013 East Lyme High School Summer Reading list has recommendations from students and faculty. This year there are many more nonfiction titles on the list for students to chose from than in previous years.  We also include the One Book, One Region selection and the East Lyme Public Library selections.

    The majority of books on our East Lyme High School Summer Reading  list can be found at the East Lyme Public Library in a special section this summer.  Most are also in the LION catalog where our students can place holds or reserves on them with their LION barcode.
