In partnership with our friends at Bookworm Central, who provide all the wonderful books for our annual Book Fair, we are delighted to launch The Basilica School of Saint Mary Online Bookstore. Available all year round, the Bookstore has more than 1,000 titles – beautiful picture and Catholic reference books; today's favorite series and graphic novels; tried and true modern-day classics; nonfiction choices for curious students; and a curated list for adults.
Feel free to share the Online Bookstore link with grandparents, family members, and friends. Every purchase earns new books for our school library!
Titles on the Recommended Reading Lists and Teacher Wish Lists have been vetted by Bookwork Central or the Library Staff. Other titles found through the search function may not fully comply with the collection development standards for our library or for certain age groups within our community. As always, we recommend that parents help guide their children's reading choices, especially with online purchases.
Specific titles are not required for rising 6th Grade Summer Reading. 6th Graders are asked to read four novels across the summer. Please reference Mrs. Hogan’s Summer Reading Guidelines posted on mySMS for details. The titles included in the 6th Grade list are some of Mrs. Hays’ favorites for this age group along with Battle of the Books selections and a good place to start your search. You are welcome to select books outside of this list to complete Mrs. Hogan’s summer checklist.
