MAMS 2019 Summer Reading

Many studies have shown the importance of summer reading and the positive impact summer reading has on Summer Learning Loss

Current 6th and 7th grade students who are in good standing with the Learning Commons, will be able to check out up to 5 books for the summer. The MAMS Learning Commons will be open during the last week of school and on dates to be announced during the summer.

Students who have access to devices and internet will find that the MAMS Learning Commons is open all summer for digital books. To find books, navigate to the MAMS Learning Commons catalog which includes Follett digital materials and access to titles.


SYNC is a free summer audiobook program for teens 13+. 
MAMS students are encouraged to create a reading goal for the summer (either a number of books or a number of pages per week) and record progress on the  MAMS 2019 Summer Reading Goal and Reading Log Form

Students who return a completed Reading Log to the Learning Commons in September will be entered into a raffle at the MAMS Fall Book Fair.

Students should check out their public library programs too. The Topsham Public Library has already started their Summer Reading program and they are offering lots of prizes to participants.

MSAD 75 students living in Bowdoin and Bowdoinham can sign up for FREE non-resident summer library cards at the Topsham Public Library thanks to a collaboration between the district, Trust for Our Future, and the Topsham Public Library. Bowdoin students can also get a free Bowdoinham Public Library card. Harpswell students can get library cards at Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick.


Don't forget that summer is a good time to check out the new Maine Student Book Award nominees!
