Check out this year’s early release titles!
The current plan is for List One teams to compete in the morning and List Two teams to compete in the afternoon, but specific details will come your way next school year. Complete reading lists will also be released in the fall. District 58 students entering third through eighth grades in the fall of 2018 can still start preparing this summer!
*Survey your friends to form teams of five-to-eight students.
*Find a parent or two to keep your team organized and get you to the games on time!
*Read these early release titles from each list; they will help you decide which list you’d like to read and compete from.
Lists will have 12 titles this year – so while there will be a little less reading to do, there will also be one more question asked about each title! Visit https://www.readinggamesdg58.com/ for more information on each title. The website includes links to the Downers Grove Library for each of the summer release titles.
