Summer Reading Program

Every year, New York libraries sponsor the Summer Reading at New York Libraries program for children and teens.

The theme of the 2019 Summer Reading at New York Libraries program is A Universe of Stories.

The "Explore New York" reading lists suggest books for different age groups/reading levels that explore New York's history, diversity and culture. These lists are annotated to indicate whether titles are available from TBBL in braille or audio format.

Digital Books

As part of Summer Reading at New York Libraries, the State Education Department has again partnered with myON to bring thousands of enhanced digital books to children from birth through 8th grade and their families all around the state. Unlimited, 24/7 access to the myON digital library will be available through a single shared account login from May 1 through September 30, 2019.

For more information about myON, including instructions on how to log in to and start using myON (available in English and Spanish), visit the Summer Reading at New York Libraries myON page.
